A cryptographic system based on a new class of binary error-correcting codes

Pál Dömösi, Carolin Hannusch, Géza Horváth


In this paper we introduce a new cryptographic system which is based on the idea of encryption due to McEliece \cite{M}. We use the McEliece encryption system with a new linear error-correcting code, which was constructed in \cite{HL}. We show how encryption and decryption works within this cryptosystem and we give the parameters for key generation. Further, we explain why this cryptosystem is a promising post-quantum candidate.
