Cryptographic Systems Based on Linear Codes


Cryptographic Systems Based on Linear Codes

An introduction to original linear code-based cryptosystems (Niederreiter and McEliece) and showing how linear code-based cryptography evolves after successful structural-based attacks are discovered. Common structural attacks will be demonstrated, as well as the modern systems modifications of the original algorithm. These modifications are classified based on codes used, ciphertext structure and key length. Based on the analysis, the current stage of code-based systems is summarized as well as real-life implementations and discussion of possible standards.
