Mini-course "Topics in Lattice-Based Cryptography"

Lattice-based cryptography is the study of cryptosystems whose security is based on the hardness of solving computational problems from lattices. Compared to traditional public-key cryptosystems based on the hardness of factoring integers or computing discrete logarithms, cryptosystems from lattices typically offer a combination of advantages: conjectured resistance against quantum computers, provable security from well-known worst-case assumptions and asymptotic efficiency. Moreover, lattices also provide a rich toolbox for designing advanced cryptographic primitives, some of which have not been known to be achievable based on the factoring and the discrete logarithm problems.
