Post-Quantum Succinct Arguments: Breaking the Quantum Rewinding Barrier. (arXiv:2103.08140v2 [cs.CR] UPDATED)

We prove that Kilian’s four-message succinct argument system is post-quantum
secure in the standard model when instantiated with any probabilistically
checkable proof and any collapsing hash function (which in turn exist based on
the post-quantum hardness of Learning with Errors). This yields the first
post-quantum succinct argument system from any falsifiable assumption.

At the heart of our proof is a new quantum rewinding procedure that enables a
reduction to repeatedly query a quantum adversary for accepting transcripts as
many times as desired. Prior techniques were limited to a constant number of
accepting transcripts.
