Title: Developing Innovative Frameworks for Efficient Code-based Signatures
Abstract: Code-based cryptography is one of the most popular areas of research in the post-quantum family. Yet, while solutions for encryption and key exchange are now recognized to be stable and have reached a good level of performance, the same can’t be said for signature schemes. Several protocols have been proposed over the years, the near entirety of which have either been broken, or exhibit very undesirable features, leading to impractical schemes. In this talk, I will discuss a some recent approaches based on zero-knowledge, that are able to offer transformative solutions, paving the way for truly practical schemes.
