IronCAP Bounty Contest

IronCAP is a patent-protected post-quantum cryptographic system based on Goppa Code-based cryptographic technology. It has embedded our proprietary subclass of (L, G) making it not only more secured but also has faster cryptographic operations (key generation, encryption, decryption) than the traditional Goppa Code-based technology (McEliece). We are asking the world to help proving our security by offering $100,000 to the first participant who manages to crack our cryptography.


  • Anyone with a Facebook, WeChat, or Google account
  • Any country
  • You need to agree to the official Rules, Terms & Conditions as set forth in the signup process.

How it works

  • Register an account
  • Login to the account
  • Obtain the hash value of the original data
  • Obtain the public key and the encrypted ciphertext
  • Submit what you believe is the original data and a paper in PDF format detailing your method of cracking (There is no limit on the number of attempts)

Tools provided

    White paper of the underlying IronCAP technology An encryption/decryption tool for experiments that uses a different keypair than the one used for this Bounty Contest

Prize claiming

  • Like a Bingo: First winner takes it all
  • Upon verification, winner will be announced and awarded a cash prize of $100,000 Canadian Dollars ($1 CDN = approximately $0.76 USD)

How IronCAP Works

IronCAP is a patent-protected cryptographic system that is safe against the excessive computational power of quantum computers.

By introducing sophisticated linear codes and error syndromes into your data, our technology confuses even quantum computers and prevents any of your information to be compromised.
