### Does there exist trapdoor permutation from lattices?

It seems that the lattice functions are either surjective (SIS) or injective (LWE), due to the error that is basically intended to destroy the structure and provide security. I was wondering whether ...

### ring-LWE: Minkowski Embedding , the Co-Different Ideal, etc

While (trying) to go over the reductions from approx. SVP on ideal lattices to search ring-LWE,  and , for $K = \mathbb{Q}(\zeta)$ where $\zeta$ is an abstract root of a cyclotomic polynomial, ...

### ZKPoK for RLWE secret and error

I came across How to validate the secret of a Ring Learning with Errors (RLWE) key paper by Ding et al., which seems to provide a ZK proof that the given $p$ is of the form $as + e$ with $s, e$ small ...

### Choosing the Bernoulli distribution for LPN encryption scheme

The symmetric-key encryption scheme from  is based on the LPN (learning parity with noise) problem. The definition of the problem is, informally, that the adversary cannot recover $\mathbf{s}$ from ...

### Why round off vector sampling from continuous Gaussian distribution not directly sample from discrete Gaussian distribution

For any vector $\mathbf{c}$, real $s > 0$, and lattice $\Lambda$, define the probability distribution $D_{\Lambda, s,\mathbf{c}}$ over $\Lambda$ by D_{\Lambda, s,\mathbf{c}}(\mathbf{x})=\frac{...

### How can I geometrically understand LWE ciphertext and decryption step?

In the bottom of the wikipedia article of LWE (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Learning_with_errors), we can see construction of Public-key cryptosystem based on the LWE. But, I cannot understand whole ...

### Does secure LWE implementation leak bit information?

We know RSA leaks one bit about the factors and improper yet secure implementations of Discrete Logarithm leak one bit about the discrete logarithm. Does LWE leak any information?

### Distinguishing advantage in terms of $\Omega(\omega)$

I was going through this paper ("Fully Homomophic Encryption over the Integers Revisited") and the statement written in the first paragraph on page 5 stating $\DeclareMathOperator{\agcd}{AGCD}$ We ...

### show how LWE errors can have a greater impact on result

Hi weve been given the following question in one of our classes but have not been taught anything about it and is worded strangely. It is to show how the LWE problem works by showing how small errors ...

### Gate count for Ring-LWE

In one of my recent research, I need to compare the number of gates needed in Ring-LWE encryption to AES in the circuit model. For AES we can find some estimation like this site, but for Ring-LWE we ...
