# Complete Attack on RLWE Key Exchange with reused keys, without signal leakage

I am studying a research paper "Complete Attack on RLWE Key Exchange with reused keys, without signal leakage" . On page number 21 to 28, there is toy example explaining the scheme.

I am unable to get the desired value of $$\mathcal B$$ as described in column 3 of table 1 on page number 22. My calculation is as follows:

$$s_B=(2,3,0,0,-5,2,3,1), \qquad e_B=(0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1)$$

$$e_B \cdot s_B=(x^7)\cdot(2+3x-5x^4+2x^5+3x^6+x^7)$$

$$e_B \cdot s_B=-3+5x^3-2x^4-3x^5-x^6+2x^7$$

So, coefficient of $$k_B[n-1]=k_B=2 \cdot e_B \cdot s_B=2 \cdot 2=4$$.

Now, calculating $$sk_B[n-1]=sk_B=\mathsf{Mod}_2(k_B[n-1],w_B[n-1])$$

$$=\mathsf{Mod}_2(4,1)= \left( 4+1 \cdot \dfrac{257-1}{2} \mod 257 \right) \mod 2=\left(4+128 \mod \ 257 \right) \mod 2=0$$

Thus, $$sk_A=sk_B$$ and value of oracle $$\mathcal B$$ must be $$1$$ (as keys get matched) but it is given $$0$$ (in column 3 of table 1 on page number 22).

There is a condition that is not considered, that is, the value after modulo 257 should be in $$\mathbb Z_q$$. When $$q = 257, \mathbb Z_q = \{ -128, ... , 128 \}$$, so, $$(4+128)\mod 257$$ should be $$-125$$ rather than $$132$$ . And $$-125 \mod 2 = 1$$. Thus, $$sk_a \neq sk_b$$ and the output of oracle $$\mathcal B$$ is $$0$$.
