### A Pseudo DNA Cryptography Method

The DNA cryptography is a new and very promising direction in cryptography
research. DNA can be used in cryptography for storing and transmitting the
information, as well as for computation. Although in its primitive stage, DNA
cryptography is shown to be very effective. Currently, several DNA computing
algorithms are proposed for quite some cryptography, cryptanalysis and
steganography problems, and they are very powerful in these areas. However, the
use of the DNA as a means of cryptography has high tech lab requirements and
computational limitations, as well as the labor intensive extrapolation means
so far. These make the efficient use of DNA cryptography difficult in the
security world now. Therefore, more theoretical analysis should be performed
before its real applications.
In this project, We do not intended to utilize real DNA to perform the
cryptography process; rather, We will introduce a new cryptography method based
on central dogma of molecular biology. Since this method simulates some
critical processes in central dogma, it is a pseudo DNA cryptography method.
The theoretical analysis and experiments show this method to be efficient in
computation, storage and transmission; and it is very powerful against certain
attacks. Thus, this method can be of many uses in cryptography, such as an
enhancement insecurity and speed to the other cryptography methods. There are
also extensions and variations to this method, which have enhanced security,
effectiveness and applicability.Comment: A small work that quite some people asked abou

### Cryptography: Mathematical Advancements on Cyber Security

The origin of cryptography, the study of encoding and decoding messages, dates back to ancient times around 1900 BC. The ancient Egyptians enlisted the use of basic encryption techniques to conceal personal information. Eventually, the realm of cryptography grew to include the concealment of more important information, and cryptography quickly became the backbone of cyber security. Many companies today use encryption to protect online data, and the government even uses encryption to conceal confidential information. Mathematics played a huge role in advancing the methods of cryptography. By looking at the math behind the most basic methods to the newest methods of cryptography, one can learn how cryptography has advanced and will continue to advance

### Quantum cryptography: key distribution and beyond

Uniquely among the sciences, quantum cryptography has driven both
foundational research as well as practical real-life applications. We review
the progress of quantum cryptography in the last decade, covering quantum key
distribution and other applications.Comment: It's a review on quantum cryptography and it is not restricted to QK

### From Golden to Unimodular Cryptography

We introduce a natural generalization of the golden cryptography, which uses
general unimodular matrices in place of the traditional Q-matrices, and prove
that it preserves the original error correction properties of the encryption.
Moreover, the additional parameters involved in generating the coding matrices
make this unimodular cryptography resilient to the chosen plaintext attacks
that worked against the golden cryptography. Finally, we show that even the
golden cryptography is generally unable to correct double errors in the same
row of the ciphertext matrix, and offer an additional check number which, if
transmitted, allows for the correction.Comment: 20 pages, no figure

### Quantum Cryptography

Quantum cryptography is a new method for secret communications offering the
ultimate security assurance of the inviolability of a Law of Nature. In this
paper we shall describe the theory of quantum cryptography, its potential
relevance and the development of a prototype system at Los Alamos, which
utilises the phenomenon of single-photon interference to perform quantum
cryptography over an optical fiber communications link.Comment: 36 pages in compressed PostScript format, 10 PostScript figures

### Quantum Cryptography

Quantum cryptography could well be the first application of quantum mechanics
at the individual quanta level. The very fast progress in both theory and
experiments over the recent years are reviewed, with emphasis on open questions
and technological issues.Comment: 55 pages, 32 figures; to appear in Reviews of Modern Physic
