# Lattice Signatures and Bimodal Gaussians

@article{Ducas2013LatticeSA, title={Lattice Signatures and Bimodal Gaussians}, author={L{\'e}o Ducas and Alain Durmus and Tancr{\`e}de Lepoint and Vadim Lyubashevsky}, journal={IACR Cryptol. ePrint Arch.}, year={2013}, volume={2013}, pages={383} }

Our main result is a construction of a lattice-based digital signature scheme that represents an improvement, both in theory and in practice, over today’s most efficient lattice schemes. The novel scheme is obtained as a result of a modification of the rejection sampling algorithm that is at the heart of Lyubashevsky’s signature scheme (Eurocrypt, 2012) and several other lattice primitives. Our new rejection sampling algorithm which samples from a bimodal Gaussian distribution, combined with a…
