More about the VMPC project and the publications:
In 1999 I discovered the VMPC one-way function: f(f(f(x))+1).
It is a simple transformation of permutations which is surprisingly hard to invert.
Why is it interesting?
There is no one-way function in the world - the one-wayness of which can be proved.
Does VMPC have the chance to be the first? From all the one-way-function-candidates VMPC has by far the
simplest structure. Will this simplicity help prove that the function is one-way?
If it was done it would solve the great secret of mathematics, the unsolved for decades problem - is P=NP?
Using the VMPC function I designed the VMPC Stream Cipher - a simple, efficient and secure encryption algorithm.
Along I designed a key management algorithm for this cipher (KSA) and an authenticated encryption scheme (MAC).
This way a the comprehensive VMPC encryption technology was created.
