Post-Quantum Key Exchange from the LWE

21 June 2017

In this lecture, we present  practical and provably
secure (authenticated) key exchange protocol and password
authenticated key exchange protocol, which are based on the
learning with errors problems. These protocols are conceptually
simple and have strong provable security properties.
This type of new constructions were started in 2011-2012.
These protocols are shown indeed practical.  We will explain
that all the existing LWE based key exchanges are variants
of this fundamental design.  In addition, we will explain
some issues with key reuse and how to use the signal function
invented for KE for authentication schemes.
