The discrete logarithm problem in the group of non-singular circulant matrices
Abstract: The discrete logarithm problem is one of the backbones in public key
cryptography. In this paper we study the discrete logarithm problem in
the group of circulant matrices over a finite field. This gives rise
to secure and fast public key cryptosystems.
Category / Keywords: public-key cryptography / MOR cryptosystems, discrete logarithm problem, circulant matrices
