Lattice-based cryptography is one of the most promising areas in regards to public key cryptosystems and key encapsulation mechanisms in the post-quantum era. Once the National Institute of Standards and Technology establishes new post-quantum standards, it would be of interest to study if it is possible to define, propose, and implement new algorithms, based on such standards, to be applied in several specific environments. In this sense, we analyze lattice-based algorithms in order to modify some of them with this mentioned objective. In particular, in our ongoing research we pretend to study the FrodoKEM proposal as one of the most promising candidates from which to derive new lattice-based algorithms.
