qTesla is a signature scheme and a submission to the NIST post-quantum standardization process, which made it to the second round. It is based on the hardness of RLWE. The NIST round 2 status report says that it didn't make it to round 3 because:
the performance of the remaining parameter sets of qTESLA is not strong enough to remain competitive. In particular, the public key sizes of q-TESLA-p-I and q-TESLA-p-III are about 15 to 20 times as large as those of FALCON and CRYSTALS-DILITHIUM, and the signature sizes are larger as well.
However, there were also attacks on the scheme, notably one by Lyubashevsky and Schwabe; the document states that
We (Peter Schwabe and I) give a complete break of (3) ‐ in particular, a signing algorithm for arbitrary messages that doesn't require the use of the secret key and is faster than the qTesla signing algorithm (which uses the secret keys).
So my question is: is qTesla considered secure? Was this attack just an attack on a variant of qTesla, or did it render qTesla insecure? Was this attack a factor in NIST not progressing it to round 3?
