Has anyone come across any implementations of Ntru TLS? I'm working a project for uni that does quantum secure encryption. It relies on a mix of Ntru & AES, but I can't find an implementation of Ntru TLS anywhere. (CyaSSL claims to have one but it needs a license to compile, I've contacted them, waiting to hear back)

Specifically, the following ciphers:


Or – even better – has anyone encountered any type of SSL/TLS implementation that doesn't rely of the discrete logarithm problem, factoring prime numbers, or elliptic curves? I've scoured the internet and come up with nothing.

The open source version of CyaSSL contains code that calls into the commercial NTRU library -- the library itself is missing of course. You might be able to make CyaSSL work with the open source NTRU implementation at https://github.com/tbuktu/libntru ; it's alpha level software though.

    $\begingroup$ BTW, NTRU is now available under the GPL and other FOSS licenses: github.com/NTRUOpenSourceProject/ntru-crypto. The open-source version has not yet been fully integrated into CyaSSL though. $\endgroup$ Jan 7, 2014 at 14:31
