A Construction of 100 bit Public-Key Cryptosystem and Digital Signature Scheme
Masao KASAHARA and Ryuichi SAKAI
Abstract: Extensive studies have been made of the public-key cryptosystems
based on multivariate polynomials . However most of the proposed
public-key cryptosystems of rate 1.0 based on multivariate
polynomials, are proved not secure.
In this paper, we propose several types of new constructions of
public-key cryptosystems based on two classes of randomly generated
simultaneous equations, namely, a class based on bijective
transformation and another class based on random transformation.
One of the features of the proposed cryptosystems is that the sets
of random simultaneous equations significantly improve the utilization
factor of the public-key space. We show an example of the proposed
cryptosystem whose size is only 100 bits that seems to be apparently
secure in a sense that the utilization factor is significantly large
compared with the conventional public-key cryptosystems.
