Error correcting codes, such as Reed-Solomon codes, can be used to create authentication codes based on orthogonal arrays. These codes are provably secure up to a certain number of uses; however, as the number of desired uses goes up, so does the keylength. This project researches the security of a code whose messages (which function as private keys) have specific form that allows them to be represented in a more compact fashion. Specifically, messages with low Hamming weight are considered.
