Description: An improved mathematical strategy for encrypting data: the mathematics of lattices offers an alternative basis for a public-key cryptosystem. A lattice is a regular array of points, each one specified by a set of coordinates. Two coordinates would designate the location of a point in a two-dimensional lattice; three coordinates, a point in a three-dimensional lattice; four coordinates, a point in a four-dimensional lattice; and so on...
