Cryptanalysis of the Algebraic Eraser Diffie-Hellman key agreement protocol by Ben-Zvi-Blackburn-Tsaban

Published November 17, 2015 by SecureRF in Algebraic Eraser, Authentication, Cryptography, RSA, Security

Analysis of cryptographic methods is a regular event, and it helps to identify areas requiring further research and possible improvement, weak keys or parameters, and in some very rare cases an actual weakness in a method (see SHA-1 research). We encourage reviews and analysis of our methods and make direct requests at conferences we attend throughout the year. On November 13, 2015, a group of […]
