Towards A Quantum World: Hash to Obtain Random Subset (HORS)

Sometime soon we will have to ween ourselves on many of your public key encryption methods. On the Ethereum infrastructure, we sign for transactions using an elliptic curve based private key. Unfortunately elliptic curves will be crackable by quantum computers, so we must thus find method which still allow us to define signatures. One way is to create a hash-based method with public…
