SAFEcrypto publishes in ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems

Collaborative research between SAFEcrypto partners QUB and RUB has led to the publication of a journal paper entitled Practical Lattice-Based Digital Signature Schemes in the ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems (TECS) Special Issue on Embedded Platforms for Cryptography in the Coming Decade, Volume 14 Issue 3, April 2015.

The focus of the paper is on recent developments in lattice-based digital signatures and a comprehensive survey is presented with signature schemes evaluated with respect to practicality. Propositions for future research areas that are essential for the continued development of lattice based cryptography are discussed.
