NIST PQCrypto Classic McEliece submission

Classic McEliece Submission to NIST‘s Post-Quantum Standardization together with Daniel J. BernsteinTung ChouTanja Lange, Ingo von Maurich, Rafael Misoczki, Ruben NiederhagenEdoardo Persichetti, Peter Schwabe, Nicolas Sendrier, Jakub Szefer, and Wen Wang.

Great to see that my Ph.D. research is relevant for the next crypto standardization, i.e., the parameters in the 2008 paper Attacking and defending the McEliece cryptosystem are still holding up.


Now included as the IND-CCA2 KEM parameters for mceliece6960119:

m = 13, n = 6960, t = 119, l = 256.

Moreover, more PQCrypto code-based crypto submissions also used my complexity computations to determine the security level of their proposals.
