Conferencia: Code Based Systems for Post-Quantum Cryptography

Conferencias, seminarios, divulgación científica


  • Fecha: Jueves 16 de Febrero de 2017
  • Lugar: Facultad de Ciencias, Aula A-21
  • Horario: 13:00 horas.
  • Descripción: Conferenciante: Prof. J. Rosenthal (Universität Zurich).
    Resumen: Code based Cryptography had its beginning in 1978 when Robert McEliece demonstrated how the hardness of decoding a general linear code up to
    half the minimum distance can be used as the basis for a public key crypto system. At the time the proposed system was not implemented in practice as the required public key was relatively large.
    With the realization that a quantum computer would make many practically used systems obsolete coding based systems became an important research subject in the area of post-quantum cryptography.
    In this talk we will provide an overview to the subject. In addition we will report on recent results where the underlying code is a disguised Gabidulin code or more generally a subspace code and where the distance measure is the rank metric respecively the subspace distance.
