Implementing QuartzLight in Java
This is the Java implementation of a modified version of the
Quartz signature scheme, called QuartzLight.
QuartzLight is not suitable for signature, as it is less secure than Quartz. However,
it can be used as a starting point for a Java implementation of Quartz.
You can access
Parts of the source code can certainly be used in other projects. E.g. the finite field
operations for GF(2^n), and also matrix operations (including LU decomposistion).
