DAGS: Key encapsulation using dyadic GS codes

Code-based cryptography is one of the main areas of interest for NIST’s Post-Quantum Cryptography Standardization call. In this paper, we introduce DAGS, a Key Encapsulation Mechanism (KEM) based on quasi-dyadic generalized Srivastava codes. The …

DAGS: Reloaded Revisiting Dyadic Key Encapsulation

In this paper we revisit some of the main aspects of the DAGS Key Encapsulation Mechanism, one of the code-based candidates to NIST’s standardization call for the key exchange/encryption functionalities. In particular, we modify the algorithms for …
