Аннотация. The paper describes post-quantum hash-based digital schemes. It analyzes digital signatures based on Merkle tree. The authors of the papers offer the methodology of designing the digital signature using the novel technology, Verkle tree. They also offer the concepts of post-quantum signature design using Verkle Tree.
