Multivariate polynomial map For a symmetric matrix A, () = . . where = is a matrix of variables of size × . is a map which assigns a matrix to a matrix. G can be regarded as 2 2 a multivariate polynomial map → . 2 Problems of G Is G applicable to signature or not? Problems 1. Can its inverse map be computed efficiently? Necessary to compute −1 M for a message M in order to generate a signature. 2. Is it surjective or not? For any message M, necessary to generate its signature. 3 Quadratic Forms • Definition 1 : Field with odd characteristic (or 0) : Natural number : → is a quadratic form = . . for some symmetric matrix • Definition 2 , : quadratic forms associated to , and are isometric . . = for some ∈ (, ) Translation of problems of in terms of quadratic form • Equation (, : symmetric matrices) () = . . = • Restrict solution ∈ (, ) o Problem 1’ For , , isometric each other, find a translation matrix efficiently. o Problem 2’ For any , , are and isometric or not? How to compute the inverse map Simple case = = 1 0 ⋱ 0 1 Problem 1’ is equivalent to Problem 1’’: Find an orthonormal basis of with respect to . Orthonormal basis: 1 , … in = 1 for = 1, … , , , ≔ . . = 0 for ≠ 5 Real field Case • = : real field Gram-Schmidt orthonormalization provides an efficient algorithm to solve Problem 1’’. It uses special property of = . Fact: = is anisotropic. Definition: A quadratic form is anisotropic for any (≠ 0) , () ≠ 0 We want to apply Gram-Schmidt orthonormalization technique to the case of finite fields. Finite Field Case Fact Let be a finite field. Any quadratic form on ( ≥ 3) is not anisotropic. We cannot apply Gram-Schmidt orthonormalization directly. • However, we can extend Gram-Schmidt orthonormalization by inserting a step: If = 0, then find another element ′ such that ′ ≠ 0. Solve Problem 1’ Problem 2 • Definition : quadratic form associated to . is nondegenerate det() ≠ 0 Classification theorem (if K has odd characteristic) Any nondegenerate quadratic form is isometric to either 1 or . 7 Classification Theorem • For any (nondegenerate) message , either • • • • ∙ 1 ∙ = or ∙ ∙ = has a solution. 1 or is determined by det(). In the degenerate case, both equations have solutions. = ∙ 1 ∙ or = ∙ ∙ is not surjective. However, we can apply this map to MPKC signature.

Property of Our Scheme • Respective map 1 or is not surjective. • However, the union of images of these maps covers the whole space. 14 Property of Our Scheme Multivariate Polynomial Maps Rainbow Surjective HFE UOV MI Not Surjective Proposal 4 Security of Our Scheme • There are several attacks of MPKC signature schemes which depend on the structure of central map. • For example, UOV attack is an attack which transforms public key into a form of central map of UOV scheme. o Central maps of UOV ara surjective. o The public key of our scheme cannot be transformed into any surjective map. • These attacks is not applicable against our scheme. （Other example: Rainbow-band-separation attack, UOV-Reconciliation attack） • However, attacks which is independent of scheme, like direct attacks, are applicable to our scheme. 15 Comparison with Rainbow Compared in the case that and are same for public key F : → • Equivalent with respect to cost of verification and public key length. • Cost of signature generation (number of mult.) o Proposal (2 ) o Rainbow (3 ) ⇒ 8 or 9 times more efficient at the level of 88-bit security. • Secret Key Size (number of elements of field) o Proposal o Rainbow 16 Conclusion • We propose a new MPKC signature scheme using quadtaci forms. The multivariate polynomial map used in the scheme is not surjective. • Signature generation uses an extended Gram-Schmidt orthonormalization. It is 8 or 9 times more efficient than that of Rainbow at the level of 88-bit security. Future Work • Security analysis • Application to encryption scheme 17
