Public-Key Cryptosystems from Lattice Reduction Problems

Oded Goldreich, Shafi Goldwasser, and Shai Halevi

Abstract: We present a new proposal for a trapdoor one-way function, from which we derive public-key encryption and digital signatures. The security of the new construction is based on the conjectured computational difficulty of lattice-reduction problems, providing a possible alternative to existing public-key encryption algorithms and digital signatures such as RSA and DSS.
