The development of quantum computers endangers the great number modern cryptosystems based on factorization problem, discrete logarithm problem and other, which can be solved in polynomial time on a quantum computer. However, quantum computing algorithms can't efficiently solve NP-hard problems at present. In this paper, we consider two public key cryptosystems based on NP-hard problems: subset sum and integer programming.

Key Words
post-quantum cryptography, knapsack public-key cryptosystem, subset sum problem, NP-hard, knapsack problem
