A Construction of A New Class of Knapsack-Type Public Key Cryptosystem, K(III)$\Sigma$PKC


Abstract: In this paper, we present a new class of knapsack type PKC referred to as K(III)$\Sigma$PKC. In a sharp contrast with the conventional knapsack type PKC's, in our proposed scheme, K(III)$\Sigma$PKC, no conventional secret sequence but the natural binary number with noise is used. We show that the coding rate, a more conservative measure for the security on knapsack PKC, can be made approximately 1.0.

In Appendix, we present K(II)$\Sigma$PKC.
