The 0/1 knapsack problem restricts the number of each items to zero or one.

Such constraint satisfaction problems are often solved using dynamic programming.

The general knapsack problem is NP-hard, and this has led to attempts to use it as the basis for public-key encryption systems. Several such attempts failed because the knapsack problems they produced were in fact solvable by polynomial-time algorithms.

[Are there any trusted knapsack-based public-key cryptosystems?].
