Hidden Field Equations

Andrey V. Sidorenko

Hidden Field Equations (HFE) is a public key cryptosystem based on the observation that solving systems of multivariate quadratic equations over finite fields is NP-complete. HFE is believed to be one of the strongest schemes of this type. The presentation is devoted to the analysis of security and practical applicability for HFE.
