A !ew Efficient Asymmetric Cryptosystem for large data sets

Abstract: The Diophantine Equation Hard Problem (DEHP) is a potential cryptographic problem on a Diophantine equation. The DEHP has been in existence for ``worst case scenario" of the RSA, Diffie-Hellman and El-Gammal schemes. However, the DEHP emerges after the exponentiation and modular reduction process. The proposed scheme (known as the $AA_{\beta}$-cryptosystem) is an asymmetric cryptographic scheme that utilizes this concept (without any prior mathematical operation) together with the factorization problem of two large primes. Its encryption speed has a complexity order faster than the Diffie-Hellman Key Exchange, El-Gammal, RSA and ECC. It can encrypt large data sets than its key size. It has a simple mathematical structure. Thus, it would have low computational requirements and would enable communication devices with low computing power to deploy secure communication procedures efficiently.
