The Efficiency and Security of a Real Quadratic Field Based-Key Exchange Protocol

Abstract

Most cryptographic key exchange protocols make use of the presumed difficulty of solving the discrete logarithm problem (DLP) in a certain finite group as the basis of their security. Recently, real quadratic number fields have been proposed for use in the development of such protocols. Breaking such schemes is known to be at least as difficult a problem as… (More)
