Recently there has been a great deal of interest in the power of \Quantum Computers" [4, 15, 18]. The driving force is the recent beautiful result of Shor that shows that discrete log and factoring are solvable in random quantum polynomial time [15]. We use a method similar to Shor's to obtain a general theorem about quantum polynomial time. We show that any cryptosystem based on what we refer to as a `hidden linear form' can be broken in quantum polynomial time. Our results imply that theâ€¦Â CONTINUE READING
