can be securely optimized for cryptographic applications when the integer N
is small and does not match machine words (i.e.,
). In this paper, we present a set of optimizations applied to DAGS, a code-based post-quantum cryptographic algorithm and one of the submissions to the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) standardization call.
