One of the most attractive problems for post-quantum secure cryptographic schemes is the LWE problem. Beside combinatorial and algebraic attacks, LWE can be solved by a lattice-based Bounded Distance Decoding (BDD) approach. We provide the first parallel implementation of an enumeration-based BDD algorithm that employs the Lindner-Peikert and Linear Length pruning strategies. We ran our algorithm on a large variety of LWE parameters, from which we derive the following interesting results. First… CONTINUE READING
