The invention of quantum computers will lead to current classical encryption techniques such as RSA, SHA, and DES being rendered inefficient against such quantum systems. Therefore, the search for a secure quantum algorithm that would be able to withstand attacks from these quantum systems is an active area of research these days. NTRU is currently the leading algorithm in the post-quantum cryptography space, and various variations of this algorithm have been created to improve upon it. In this paper a variation of the NTRU algorithm using a complex algebra called trigintaduonions is presented. This approach is shown to be more secure against attacks as opposed to NTRU and STRU.
