Non-associative key establishment for left distributive systems

  • Arkadius Kalka EMAIL logo and Mina Teicher


We construct non-associative key establishment protocols for all left self-distributive (LD), multi-LD-, and other left distributive systems. Instantiations of these protocols using generalized shifted conjugacy in braid groups lead to instances of a natural and apparently new group-theoretic problem, which we call the (subgroup) conjugacy coset problem.
