SSProtect is a comprehensive data protection solution based on the patent-pending KODiAC Architecture, a distributed cryptosystem that manages host application data without impacting user workflows.
In 1985, elgamal published a paper titled: AA public key cryptosystem and a signature scheme based on discrete logarithms@, in which he proposed the design of the elgamal discrete logrithm cryptosystem and of the elgamal signature scheme.
In this paper, a public key cryptosystem using Number theoretic transforms (NTT) [7, 8, and 12] over the ring of integer modulo a composite number n resistible against brute force attack is discussed.
In general, the cryptographer has the benefit over the cryptanalyst (the person attacking the cryptosystem) as he or she can select the key size for any desired level of security (measured in 'cost' either in euros or computer-years), provided everyone has the same base of knowledge of best attacks on the underlying cryptosystem," Kohel said.
