Questions tagged [output-size]

Output size refers to the output size of specific cryptographic functions. It is especially relevant when the output must fit into a resource constrained system or protocol. For signatures it is the signature size, for KEM schemes it is the size of the encapsulated key.

What are the public key and output sizes for the four remaining PQC KEM candidates?

Currently there are only 4 direct candidates left that provide KEM. Generally performance seems to be "OK" for those candidates. However, the key and encapsulated key sizes (i.e. the output ...

Is there a simple formula to calculate how many inputs generate same outputs in cryptographic hash functions, being the input larger than the input?

Let's suppose I hash a 384-bits message with a cryptographic hash function and generate a hash digest of 128-bits. I know that due to the pigeonhole principle, many inputs of same size will result in ...
