A Construction of Public-Key Cryptosystem Using Algebraic Coding on the Basis of Superimposition and Randomness

Masao Kasahara

Abstract: In this paper, we present a new class of public-key cryptosystem (PKC) using algebraic coding on the basis of superimposition and randomness. The proposed PKC is featured by a generator matrix, in a characteristic form, where the generator matrix of an algebraic code is repeatedly used along with the generator matrix of a random code, as sub-matrices. This generator matrix, in the characteristic form, will be referred to as $K$-matrix. We show that the $K$-matrix yields the following advantages compared with the conventional schemes: \begin{description} \item [(i)] It realizes an abundant supply of PKCs, yielding more secure PKCs. \item [(i\hspace{-.1em}i)] It realizes a fast encryption and decryption process. \end{description}
