Abstract

Computational efficiency is of prime importance to any micro-processor based cryptosystem. A technique is presented here which permits a reduction in the enciphering complexity of private key schemes without a loss in security. The net result can be a simplification of the system’s implementation, a reduction in cryptographic overhead and the potential for a simple mathematical analysis of the security system.
