The BKZ Algorithm in Practice

Shaun Miller - 9/6/19

Abstract: NIST is currently standardizing new encryption schemes for a post-quantum era. Many of these propositions, such as NewHope, have security estimates closely related to the difficulty of lattice problems. The best way in practice to solve these problems has been through the use of the BKZ algorithm. In this talk, we will discuss the algorithms affect on the security parameters of NewHope and apply BKZ on a lattice problem in SAGE.
