We call Mirror Theory the theory that deals with the number of solutions of systems of linear equalities and linear NON equalities in finite groups. This theory is very closely related to the security of most secret key cryptographic generic schemes when we want proofs of security above "the birthday bound" (and up to the information bound). In this talk we will present some theorems, funny examples, and simple conjectures related to this "Mirror Theory".
