On the Usage of Chained Codes in Cryptography
Omessaad Hamdi, Ammar Bouallegue, Sami Harari
Pages - 482 - 490     |    Revised - 30-12-2009     |    Published - 31-01-2010
Volume - 3   Issue - 6    |    Publication Date - January 2010  Table of Contents
Cryptography, Chained Codes, Attack,, Complexity
We discuss the chained randomized linear code and their use in cryptography. We show that the adoption of randomized chained codes in the framework of McEliece cryptosystem expose the cryptosystem to some new attacks.
