This Ph.D. project deals with applications of the theory of Lattices to Public-Key Cryptography. Algorithms based on this theory have gained popularity as a result of the advent of quantum computers, which promise to make ineffective the current methods of public-key cryptography, such as those based on RSA and elliptic curves. In particular we want to explore in this project the analysis aspects of safety and efficiency of implementations.»inglêsTraduzir
