Schmidt, Multivariate Public Key Cryptosystemsvol. Without loss of generality, we assume that the two invertible affine transformations and are linear [ 21 ] and define the terms of in in 1.

Let be an irreducible polynomial with degree over ; then forms a degree- extension field. We consider the HFE scheme over finite fields with characteristic 3. El Din, and P. Firstly, we define an Cryptosysten map in 1 and randomly choose two invertible affine transformations and. Notations Let be a -order finite field with being a prime power. The plain version of HFE is considered to be practically broken, in the sense that secure parameters lead to an impractical scheme.

The new type of attack is quite general, and in a companion paper we use it to break other multivariate algebraic schemes, such as the Dragon encryption and signature schemes.

The computational costs are at least bit operations, according relinarization the results given on page in [ 2 ]. By setting we can express as bilinear equations about input and output of function: We first review the basic idea of known attacks and then illustrate why the proposal is secure against these attacks.

However, the central map can be represented with a low-rank matrix [ 7 ], which makes it vulnerable to Bj attacks [ 7 — 9 ].


In fact, the quadratic polynomial map is exactly the public key of the original HFE scheme, and the secret key of the original scheme also consists of, and.

We define with forand It is obvious that. So the HFE scheme is secure against linearization equations attack.

Hence, forSo. Thus we can easily verify that So we get. However, the original HFE scheme was insecure, and the follow-up modifications were shown to be still vulnerable to attacks.

Multivariate cryptography has been very productive in terms of design and cryptanalysis. As a new multivariate public key encryption, the security of the proposal needs to be furthered.

However, the rank of the matrix is relinearizatiob, and hence the rank of the matrix is not necessarily low. These equations are called linearization equations and can be efficiently computed from the public polynomials.

Thus by solving the MinRank problem we can determine the matrix and the coefficients of the linear transformation.

Then we compute their inverses and and the -variable quadratic polynomials. We represent the published system of multivariate polynomials by a single univariate polynomial of a special form over an extension field, and use it to reduce the cryptanalytic problem to a system of fflm 2 quadratic equations in m variables over the extension field.

Subscribe to Table of Contents Alerts. The hidden field equations HFE scheme [ 5 ] may be the most cryptanalysks cryptosystem amongst all multivariate public key cryptographic schemes.

Performance analysis shows that the modification can save the public key storage by bits and reduces the encryption costs by about bit operations. We can see from the security analysis that the proposed HFE modification encryption scheme can obtain a security level of 80 bits under vryptanalysis suggested parameters. Please help improve this section by adding citations to reliable sources. The HFE scheme firstly defines a univariate map over an extension field: Note that the Frobenius maps for defined over are -linear; namely, when expressed in the base fieldwill be -dimensional linear ket over.

Linearization Equations Attack Basic Idea. So under the algebraic attacks, the proposed modification HFE encryption scheme can obtain a relinearizattion level of 80 bits under the suggested parameters.

In the proposed modification HFE encryption scheme, we impose some restrictions on the plaintext space. In certain cases those polynomials could be defined over both a ground and an extension field. Abstract Multivariate public key cryptography is a set of cryptographic schemes built from the NP-hardness of solving quadratic equations over finite fields, amongst which the hidden field equations HFE family of schemes remain the publkc famous.

Public key cryptography [ 1 ] built from the NP-hardness of crypotsystem multivariate quadratic equations over finite filed [ 23 ] was conceived as a plausible candidate to traditional factorization and discrete logarithm cryptsoystem public key cryptosystems due to its high performance and the resistance to quantum attacks [ 4 ].
