Th NTRU cryptosystem is a lattice-based encryption scheme. Several parameters determine the speed, size, correctness rate and security of the algorithm. These parameters need to be carefully selected for the algorithm to function correctly. This thesis includes a short overview of the NTRU algorithm and its mathematical background before discussing the results of experimentally testing various different parameter sets for NTRU and determining the effect that different relationships between these parameters have on the overall effectiveness of NTRU.
