A variant of the McEliece cryptosystem with increased public key security


Baldi, M; Bianchi, M; Chiaraluce, F; Rosenthal, J; Schipani, D (2011). A variant of the McEliece cryptosystem with increased public key security. In: WCC 2011 - Seventh Workshop on Coding and Cryptography, Paris, FR, 11 April 2011 - 14 April 2011, Paris, FR, 11 April 2011 - 15 April 2011, 173-182.

Abstract

We propose a new variant of the McEliece cryptosystem which ensures that the code used as the public key is not permutation-equivalent to the secret code. This allows to increase the security of the public key, and to reconsider possible adoption of classical families of codes, like Reed-Solomon codes. A reduction in the key size or, equivalently, an increased level of security against nformation set decoding are the main advantages of the modi ed cryptosystem. As a drawback, the domain of intentional error vectors must be restricted, but we show that this has no signi cant impact on the security level.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
