Secure Variant of the McEliece Cryptosystem

The McEliece public-key encryption scheme has become an interesting alternative to standard modern cryptosystems. Compared with other schemes it is not known to be broken by a quantum computer. It is also relatively efficent with a reasonable key size.
This work from the arxiv resource, shows the first construction of a McEliece based public-key cryptosystem secure against chosen ciphertext attacks
