Cryptography and Secure Communication by Richard E. Blahut

By Richard E. Blahut

Today's pervasive computing and communications networks have created an excessive want for safe and trustworthy cryptographic structures. Bringing jointly a desirable mix of themes in engineering, arithmetic, machine technology, and informatics, this e-book offers the undying mathematical conception underpinning cryptosystems either previous and new. significant branches of classical and glossy cryptography are mentioned intimately, from easy block and circulation cyphers via to structures in accordance with elliptic and hyperelliptic curves, followed by means of concise summaries of the required mathematical heritage. useful facets similar to implementation, authentication and protocol-sharing also are lined, as are the prospective pitfalls surrounding a number of cryptographic equipment. Written in particular with engineers in brain, and delivering an effective grounding within the correct algorithms, protocols and methods, this insightful advent to the principles of recent cryptography is perfect for graduate scholars and researchers in engineering and computing device technology, and practitioners all in favour of the layout of protection structures for communications networks.

Recent Advances in RSA Cryptography

Fresh Advances in RSA Cryptography surveys an important achievements of the final 22 years of analysis in RSA cryptography. certain emphasis is laid at the description and research of proposed assaults opposed to the RSA cryptosystem. the 1st chapters introduce the mandatory heritage info on quantity thought, complexity and public key cryptography.

Concrete and Abstract Voronoi Diagrams

The Voronoi diagram of a suite of web sites is a partition of the aircraft into areas, one to every website, such that the area of every web site comprises all issues of the aircraft which are towards this website than to the opposite ones. Such walls are of significant value to computing device technology and lots of different fields. The problem is to compute Voronoi diagrams fast.

7 Cryptanalysis known ciphertext attack is always a threat to a public-key cryptosystem, which will be discussed in later chapters. 1 for a cryptosystem that uses an elementary modulo-two (exclusive-or) addition of a binary key to a binary dataword. If the same key k is used twice to form the two ciphertexts y1 = x 1 + k and y2 = x 2 + k, then the cryptanalyst can add the two ciphertexts to form y1 + y2 = x 1 + x 2 . Because x 2 is presumably a message with a known structure, it will be easier to recover x 1 corrupted by x 2 than to recover x 1 hidden by k.

If the keys are m-bit binary numbers, then #K = 2m , provided all bits are effectively used. One way of trying to improve the security is to encrypt twice, using two keys. Thus, encrypt by using y = ek (ek (x)) and decrypt by using x = dk (dk (y)). This is called an iterated cipher or, if the two ciphers are of different kinds, a cascade cipher. The product keyspace K2 then has the apparent size (#K)2 or (#K1 )(#K2 ). If the keys are each an m-bit binary number, then (#K)2 = 22m . However, ensuring that these double keys are all different might not be enough.
