Computational Algebra Seminar: Lange and Bernstein

This Thursday we will have two short talks.


   Factoring RSA keys from certified smart cards: Coppersmith in the wild

   Tanja Lange, Technische Universiteit Eindhoven


Then (at 3.30pm or so)

   McBits: fast constant-time code-based cryptography

   Daniel J. Bernstein, University of Illinois at Chicago and
                        Technische Universiteit Eindhoven

   Abstract: This talk presents extremely fast algorithms for code-based
   public-key cryptography, including full protection against timing
   attacks. For example, at a 2^128 security level, these algorithms
   achieve a reciprocal decryption throughput of just 60493 cycles (plus
   cipher cost etc.) on a single Ivy Bridge core. These algorithms rely
   on an additive FFT for fast root computation, a transposed additive
   FFT for fast syndrome computation, and a sorting network to avoid
   cache-timing attacks. This is joint work with Tung Chou (Technische
   Universiteit Eindhoven) and Peter Schwabe (Radboud Universiteit
