US standardization authority NIST has published the algorithms that participate in the Post-Quantum Crypto Competition. No fewer than 69 crypto systems enter the race.

Today I am going to introduce a simple asymmetric encryption system. It’s not suitable for practical use, but very helpful for explaining how public key cryptography works.

Researchers tested whether two artificial intelligence systems could develop an ecryption algorithm a third one could not break. In some test runs it worked.
