Oblivious Transfer Based on the McEliece Assumptions

Rafael Dowsley and Jeroen van de Graaf and Jörn Müller-Quade and Anderson C. A. Nascimento

Abstract: We implement one-out-of-two bit oblivious transfer (OT) based on the assumptions used in the McEliece cryptosystem: the hardness of decoding random binary linear codes, and the difficulty of distinguishing a permuted generating matrix of Goppa codes from a random matrix. To our knowledge this is the first OT reduction to these problems only.
