Selmer Center in Secure Communication

A Seminar on Post-Quantum Cryptography

Main content

The fast development of quantum computers capable has posed increasing threats against data security. If large-scale quantum computers are ever built, they will be able to break many of the public-key cryptosystems currently in use. This would seriously compromise the confidentiality and integrity of digital communications on the Internet and elsewhere. The research on the development of new public-key cryptosystems with strong resistance against quantum attacks has been active in recent years. There are different ways to approach this goal. Known encryption and key exchange algorithms can be classified in five different families code-based, lattice-based, isogeny-based, hash-based and multivariate cryptography. Wrya K. Kadir is a research fellow at Selmer center for secure communications under supervision of Dr. Chunlei Li. During his PhD he has been working on code-based cryptography and decoding algorithms for new rank metric MRD codes in particular. On Thursday, August 26, Kadir gave a talk at a seminar on post-quantum cryptography. The event was held on ZOOM and it was a cooperation between the Selmer center and the College of Science and Technology at the University of Human Development, Kurdistan-Iraq.
