19:17 [Pub][ePrint] The Algorithm of AAES, by Shiyong Zhang and Gongliang Chen and Lei Fan

  The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) was specified in 2001 by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. This paper expand the method and make it possible to realize a new AES-like algorithm that has 256 bits fixed block size, which is named AAES algorithm. And we use Verilog to simulate the arithmetic and use Lattice Diamond to simulate the hardware property and action. We get the conclusion that the algorithm can be easily used on indestury and it is more robustness and safety than AES. And they are on the same order of magnitude in hardware implementation.

19:17 [Pub][ePrint] On r-th Root Extraction Algorithm in F_q For q=lr^s+1 (mod r^(s+1)) with 0 < l < r and Small s, by Namhun Koo and Gook Hwa Cho and Soonhak Kwon

  We present an r-th root extraction algorithm over a finite field

F_q. Our algorithm precomputes a primitive r^s-th root of unity where s is the largest positive integer satisfying r^s| q-1, and is applicable for the cases when s is small. The proposed algorithm requires one exponentiation for the r-th root computation and is favorably compared to the existing algorithms.

18:32 [Job][New] Post-Doc, Aalto University School of Science, Helsinki, Finland

  The cryptography group at Aalto University School of Science is specialized in statistical cryptanalysis of symmetric-key cryptographic primitives as well as implementation efficiency and security of both asymmetric-key and symmetric-key primitives. Also mathematical structures that provide resistance against such attacks belong to the groupĀ“s interest areas. In the current call we look for researchers who have PhD degree and background in the areas mentioned above.

13:17 [Pub][ePrint] A new index calculus algorithm with complexity $L(1/4+o(1))$ in very small characteristic, by Antoine Joux

  In this paper, we describe a new algorithm for discrete logarithms in

small characteristic. It works especially well when the characteristic

is fixed. Indeed, in this case, we obtain a total complexity of $L(1/4+o(1)).$
