Programs to chapter 5 of book "Multivariate Public Key Cryptosystems" by Ding, Petzoldt and Schmidt
For generating the public and private keys use; load "keygen.txt"
To sign a (randomly generated) document: load "sign.txt";
To verify the signature: load "verify.txt";
If the characteristic is odd use: load "forge_odd.txt"; The program uses only the data in public_key.txt and a randomly generated document and shows that its signature would be accepted.
The program "forge_even.txt" for the case with even characteristic will be added later
