On new multivariate cryptosystems based on hidden Eulerian equations over finite fields

Vasyl Ustimenko

Abstract: We propose new multivariate cryptosystems over $n$-dimensional vector space over a finite field $F_q$ based on idea of hidden discrete logarithm problem for ${F^*}_q$. These cryptosystems are based on hidden eulerian equations $x^{\alpha}=a$, $(\alpha, q-1)=1$. The method is based on the idea of Eulerian transformations, which allow us to use asymmetric algorithms based on families of nonlinear multiplicatively injective maps of prescribed polynomial density and flexible degree.
