"The NTRU and PASS lattice-based public-key cryptosystem and identification schemes"

Daniel Lieman

University of Missouri Department of Mathematics and NTRU Cryptosystems, Inc.

In this talk, we'll give a survey of the NTRU and PASS public-key algorithms. Despite the speaker's affiliation, we shall attempt to make a fair comparison of NTRU to RSA and ECC.

NTRU is based on different hard problems than RSA or ECC, and this lets it enjoy great computational efficiency. We will review all necessary background; in particular, no prior knowledge of lattice-based cryptosystems will be assumed.
