Application of the UMAC algorithm on crypto-code structures in blockchain technologies




blockchain technology, UMAC algorithm, hash-function, crypto-code construction, computational experiment, elliptic codes


A computational experiment is conducted on the possibility of using McElice crypto-code constructions with elliptic codes based on the UMAC algorithm to ensure the implementation of the basic rules of blockchain technology for the transfer of confidential information. The results of the calculations are analyzed, the conclusion is made on the practicality of the practical implementation of a quick hashing algorithm to increase the security level of the blockchain technology block chains
