Patarin developed other schemes. August Learn how and when to remove this template message. The RSA public key cryptosystem is based on a single modular equation in one variable. That’s why those schemes are often considered to be good candidates for post-quantum cryptography. Security and Communication Networks.

It is shown that the modification can defend the known attacks including the MinRank attack, the linearization equations attack, and the direct algebraic attacks. In this matrix equation, we only know that is of low rank at most. This cryptoysstem does not cite any sources. By doing this, we can impose a fully nonlinear transformation on the central map of the HFE encryption scheme.

The plaintext space is. In certain cases those polynomials could be defined over both a ground and an extension field. Conflicts of Interest The authors declare that they have no conflicts of interest.

So the adversary cannot derive from the publicly known map a low-rank matrix. Then we merge the coefficients of the square and linear terms ofthat is, forand get the public key of the modified HFE scheme, namely, quadratic polynomialscrypatnalysis, forThe secret key consists of, and. However, some simple variants of HFE, such as the minus variant and the vinegar variant allow one to crypfosystem the basic HFE against all known attacks.

The modified HFE decryption recovers the plaintext by peeling off the composition one by one from the cryptksystem side. History of cryptography Cryptanalysis Outline of cryptography. However, the central map can be represented with a low-rank matrix [ 7 ], which makes it vulnerable to MinRank attacks [ 7 — 9 ].

We consider the HFE scheme over finite fields crjptosystem characteristic 3. The system parameters consist of an irreducible polynomial with degree overthe extension fieldand the isomorphism between and.

Subscribe to Table of Contents Alerts. It was shown that the linearization equations have a rank of at least [ 20 ].

The encryption of the original HFE scheme is just to computewhere the plaintext is in but not necessarily in.

Introduction Public key cryptography [ 1 ] built from the NP-hardness of solving multivariate quadratic equations over finite filed [ 23 ] was conceived as a plausible candidate to traditional factorization and discrete logarithm based public key cryptosystems due to ke high performance and the resistance to quantum attacks [ 4 ].


Thus by solving the MinRank problem we can determine the matrix and the coefficients of the linear transformation.

So the proposed scheme reduces the public key size by bits. Linearization equations attack [ 18 ] was found by Patarin on the Matsumoto-Imai scheme [ 19 crtptosystem. This page was last edited on 9 Septemberat Conclusions In this paper, we proposed a novel modified HFE encryption scheme.

View at MathSciNet Y. Then two invertible affine transformations are applied to hide the special structure of the central map [ 25 cryyptosystem. So and satisfy the following equations derived from the bilinear equations, namely, where crytanalysis all the coefficients in. We represent the published system of multivariate polynomials by a single univariate polynomial of a special form over an extension field, and use it to reduce the cryptanalytic problem to a system of fflm 2 quadratic equations in m variables over the extension field.

These equations are called linearization equations and can be efficiently computed from the public polynomials. Abstract The RSA public key cryptosystem is based on a single modular equation in one variable.

The plaintext block also satisfies the pjblic equation.
