Security of the GPT cryptosystem and its applications to cryptography


The public key cryptosystem (PKC) based on rank error correcting codes (the GPT cryptosystem) was proposed in 1991. Use of rank codes in cryptographic applications is advantageous since it is practically impossible to utilize combinatoric decoding. This enabled using public keys of a smaller size. Several attacks against this system were published… (More)
