Modifications of niederreiter crypto-code construction




Niederreiter modified crypto-code construction, modified shortened elliptic codes, equilibrium coding, informational secrecy


Studies of the Niederreiter crypto-code construction at MES have revealed the main reason for the impossibility of practical implementation of decoding algorithms with non-binary codes in the classical scheme. It has been established that fixing a subset of plaintexts is required, for which the error localization procedure cannot be performed with masking selected private matrices X, P, and D. The modified algorithm is developed by shortening the source data and fixing the allowable positional plaintext transformation vectors based on equilibrium coding
