Algorithmic Cryptanalysis by Antoine Joux

By Antoine Joux

Illustrating the facility of algorithms, Algorithmic Cryptanalysis describes algorithmic tools with cryptographically appropriate examples. concentrating on either inner most- and public-key cryptographic algorithms, it provides every one set of rules both as a textual description, in pseudo-code, or in a C code program.

Divided into 3 elements, the ebook starts with a brief creation to cryptography and a history bankruptcy on uncomplicated quantity conception and algebra. It then strikes directly to algorithms, with each one bankruptcy during this part devoted to a unmarried subject and sometimes illustrated with basic cryptographic functions. the ultimate half addresses extra subtle cryptographic purposes, together with LFSR-based movement ciphers and index calculus methods.

Accounting for the influence of present desktop architectures, this booklet explores the algorithmic and implementation elements of cryptanalysis tools. it could function a instruction manual of algorithmic equipment for cryptographers in addition to a textbook for undergraduate and graduate classes on cryptanalysis and cryptography.

For any x in N Z and any α in Z, αx is in N Z. Thanks to these properties, it is possible to construct the quotient of Z by N Z, denoted by Z/N Z. More precisely, this quotient is obtained by considering equivalence classes for the equivalence relation ≡, defined by x ≡ y if and only if x − y ∈ N Z. As usual, the quotient Z/N Z inherits the addition and multiplication from Z. In order to represent Z/N Z, it is often convenient to choose a representative element in the interval [0, N − 1]. In some cases, an interval with positive and negative numbers such as ] − N/2, N/2] might be used instead of [0, N − 1].

We briefly present these alternatives here. A first possibility is the continued fraction algorithm, which can be seen as a rewriting of the extended Euclidean algorithm for inputs of the form (x, 1). Given an arbitrary real x, we define two sequences, one formed of reals r and one formed of integers c. The two sequences are obtained from the following rules: • The sequence r is initialized by setting r0 = x. • The two sequences are computed recursively, for all i: ci = ri ri+1 and 1 . 11) Note that, if ri = ci for some value of i, we cannot define ri+1 and the two sequences have a finite number of terms.

With secret key encryption and MACs. We discuss the case of public key primitives afterwards. 1 Authenticated encryption in the secret key setting The goal of authenticated encryption is to perform encryption and authentication of messages, while guaranteeing the security of both primitives simultaneously. This can be done by composing two preexisting cryptographic primitives or by devising a new specific algorithm (for some examples, see [Jut01, KVW04, Luc05, RBBK01]). , for arbitrary preexisting primitives, was studied in detail by Bellare and Namprempre in [BN00] and raises some deep questions about the relations between confidentiality and integrity.
