Invariants for EA- and CCZ-equivalence of APN and AB functions

An (n,m)-function is a mapping from F 2 n ${\mathbb {F}_{2}^{n}}$ to F 2 m ${\mathbb {F}_{2}^{m}}$ . Such functions have numerous applications across mathematics and computer science, and in particular are used as building blocks of block ciphers …


The Hermitian dual-containing LCD BCH codes and related quantum codes

Let q be a prime power. In this paper, we investigate the maximum designed distances of LCD BCH codes over F q 2 $\mathbb {F}_{q^{2}}$ such that they contain their Hermitian dual codes, and also calculate their dimensions. As an application, we …


Repeated root cyclic codes over and their Lee distances

In this paper we have studied repeated root cyclic codes of length pk over R = ℤ p 2 + u ℤ p 2 $R=\mathbb {Z}_{p^{2}}+u\mathbb {Z}_{p^{2}}$ , u2 = 0, where p is a prime and k is a positive integer. We have determined a unique set of generators for …


Resolvable block designs in construction of approximate real MUBs that are sparse

Several constructions of Mutually Unbiased Bases (MUBs) borrow tools from combinatorial objects. In this paper we focus on how one can construct Approximate Real MUBs (ARMUBs) with improved parameters using results from the domain of Resolvable …

Attacking the linear congruential generator on elliptic curves via lattice techniques

In this paper we study the linear congruential generator on elliptic curves from the cryptographic point of view. We show that if sufficiently many of the most significant bits of the composer and of three consecutive values of the sequence are …
