New Combinatorial Complete One-Way Functions

Arist Kojevnikov & Sergey I. Nikolenko
In 2003, Leonid A. Levin presented the idea of a combinatorial complete one-way function and a sketch of the proof that Tiling represents such a function. In this paper, we present two new one-way functions based on semi-Thue string rewriting systems and a version of the Post Correspondence Problem and prove their completeness. Besides, we present an alternative proof of Levin's result. We also discuss the properties a combinatorial problem should have in order to...
