Algebraic attack on lattice based cryptosystems via solving equations over real numbers.

Jintai Ding and Dieter Schmidt

Abstract: In this paper we present a new algorithm to attack lattice based cryptosystems by solving a problem over real numbers. In the case of the NTRU cryptosystem, if we assume the additional information on the modular operations, we can break the NTRU cryptosystems completely by getting the secret key. We believe that this fact was not known before.
