Project title: Code Based Cryptography
Project description: Code-based cryptography is among the most attractive post-quantum cryptographic techniques. It allows the construction of the most important cryptographic primitives (encryption, signature, zero-knowledge, hashing…) often with efficient implementations. In addition, their security is very well understood. The purpose of my PhD is to examine some of the main code-based cryptographic primitives, namely the McEliece and the Niederreiter public key encryption schemes, the CFS digital signature scheme, the Stern zero-knowledge identification protocol and some of their variants.
