Security Features of an Asymmetric Cryptosystem Based on the Diophantine Equation Hard Problem

A proper implementation of DEHP would render an attacker to search for private parameters amongst the exponentially many solutions. However, an improper implementation would provide an attacker exponentially many choices to solve the DEHP. The AA -cryptosystem is an asymmetric cryptographic scheme that utilizes this concept together with the factorization problem of two large primes and is implemented only by using the multiplication operation for both encryption and decryption. With this simple mathematical structure, it would have low computational requirements and would enable communication devices with low computing power to deploy secure communication procedures efficiently.
