Huey received a
Ph.D. in Mathematics from National University of Singapore, Singapore. Her
on Algebraic Error Correcting Codes and Algebraic Design Theory, particularly
on problems in the theory of group ring codes, different sets and wighting matrices. She also interested on
problems in algebraic cryptography theory and Creative way to train High Order
Thinking Skill in Mathematics Teaching. She is currently an associate professor
in Universiti Sains Malaysia.
is the study of secret writing by converting ordinary plain text into
unintelligible text called cipher text. Classical cryptography including Public
Key Cryptography (Asymmetric Cryptography) and Hybrid Cryptography (Private +
Public Key Cryptography), relies on the high computational
difficulty of factorizing large number to provide the security of a system.
functioning processor of a quantum computer is capable of threatening all
current popular PKCs due to its one way functions which are no longer one way
under quantum computing. With
the emergence of post-quantum cryptograph, there are PKCs implemented using hard
mathematical problems that are found to be quantum resistant such as the McEliece
code-based cryptosystem. Until today, original McEliece PKC still have no attack known to give a
serious threat to it even on a quantum computer. The only weakness of McEliece PKC
is that it’s
public key size is too large. A few
modification have been made on original McEliece scheme to reduce the key size but proven
to be insecure. The modifications proposed by Kobara and Imai in 2001 is known to be
successful as both are CCA2-secure.
