On the Lightweight McEliece Cryptosystem for Low-Power Devices

P. 133-138.
Ivanov F., Krouk E., Kreshchuk A.

In this paper we consider a problem of secured data transmission for low-power devices such as RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) tags or some other devices for Internet of Things (IoT) for which low power consumption plays significant role. In fact, the privacy aspect involved with technology of RFID and IoT could become a major issue in the perspective of a global adoption. We considered well-known McEliece cryptosystems both in classical case (based on Goppa Codes) and based on Quasi-Cyclic Moderate-Density Parity-Check Codes (QC-MDPC) as a major security element of small and low-power devices. We also estimate a trade-off between complexity and security level of suggested system.
