Decoding supercodes of Gabidulin codes and applications to cryptanalysis

3 Mar 2021 Maxime Bombar Alain Couvreur

This article discusses the decoding of Gabidulin codes and shows how to extend the usual decoder to any supercode of a Gabidulin code at the cost of a significant decrease of the decoding radius. Using this decoder, we provide polynomial time attacks on the rank-metric encryption schemes RAMESSES and LIGA...
