Naccache–Stern Knapsack Cryptosystem - System Overview

System Overview

This system is based on a type of knapsack problem. Specifically, the underlying problem is this: given integers c,n,p and v0,...,vn, find a vector such that

The idea here is that when the vi are relatively prime and much smaller than the modulus p this problem can be solved easily. It is this observation which allows decryption.

Famous quotes containing the word system:
