## The index of coincidence and its applications in cryptanalysis

The mere number of various apparently different statistical attacks on block ciphers has raised the question about their relationships which would allow to classify them and determine those that give essentially complementary information about the security of block ciphers. While mathematical links between some statistical attacks have been derived in the last couple of years, the important link between general truncated differential and multidimensional linear attacks has been missing. In this work we close this gap. The new link is then exploited to relate the complexities of chosen-plaintext and known-plaintext distinguishing attacks of differential and linear types, and further, to explore the relations between the key-recovery attacks. Our analysis shows that a statistical saturation attack is the same as a truncated differential attack, which allows us, for the first time, to provide a justifiable analysis of the complexity of the statistical saturation attack and discuss its validity on 24 rounds of the PRESENT block cipher. By studying the data, time and memory complexities of a multidimensional linear key-recovery attack and its relation with a truncated differential one, we also show that in most cases a known-plaintext attack can be transformed into a less costly chosen-plaintext attack.

Languages have inherent characteristics that make them their own and differentiated entities within their phyla and families. Even messages written in any language and later encrypted by cryptographic systems do not lose all of their characteristics, there remain aspects that help the cryptanalyst to recover them without knowing the decryption keys. For the characterization of the languages we will consider the frequencies of their graphemic and phonetic units and the Index of Coincidence, tools of fundamental utility in the field of Cryptography. Their diachronic invariance or survival over time in one language and their ability to discriminate against other languages will be analized. In order to do so, we will examine a total of languages of which texts have been taken.

Riverbank Laboratories is a privately owned research facility located in Geneva, Illinois. In the early 20th century, Colonel George Fabyan, the founder and long-time director of Riverbank, began hiring specialists to conduct research in a variety of fields including acoustics, genetics, medicine, and cryptology. William F. Friedman arrived at Riverbank Laboratories in September to serve as the director for the Department of Genetics. Shortly after William F. Friedman began studying the theory and practice of cryptography while continuing to investigate the authorship of Shakespeare.

In this section we study certain statistical properties of texts and languages. These help to answer questions such as: Does a given text belong to a certain language? Can we derive an algorithm for automatically distinguishing valid plaintext from random noise?

In cryptography , coincidence counting is the technique invented by William F. Friedman [1] of putting two texts side-by-side and counting the number of times that identical letters appear in the same position in both texts. This count, either as a ratio of the total or normalized by dividing by the expected count for a random source model, is known as the index of coincidence , or IC for short. Because letters in a natural language are not distributed evenly , the IC is higher for such texts than it would be for uniformly random text strings.

Part of the History of Computing book series HC. This accessible textbook presents a fascinating review of cryptography and cryptanalysis across history. This is then followed by an exploration of cryptology in the computer age, from public-key cryptography and web security, to criminal cyber-attacks and cyber-warfare. Looking to the future, the role of cryptography in the Internet of Things is also discussed, along with the potential impact of quantum computing. This engaging work is ideal as both a primary text for courses on the history of cryptology, and as a supplementary text for advanced undergraduate courses on computer security. No prior background in mathematics is assumed, beyond what would be encountered in an introductory course on discrete mathematics. John F.

Malware embedded in documents is regularly used as part of targeted attacks. While for short keys these ciphers can be easily cracked, breaking obfuscations with longer keys requires manually reverse engineering the code or dynamically analyzing the documents in a sandbox. To this end, our method performs a probable-plaintext attack from classic cryptography using strings likely contained in malware binaries, such as header signatures, library names and code fragments. We demonstrate the efficacy of this approach in different experiments. On a collection of real-world malware in Word, Powerpoint and RTF files, Kandi is able to expose obfuscated malware from every fourth document without involved parsing. Unable to display preview.

- Уничтожить всю нашу секретную информацию? - Сьюзан не могла поверить, что Танкадо совершит нападение на главный банк данных АНБ. Она перечитала его послание. СЕЙЧАС ВАС МОЖЕТ СПАСТИ ТОЛЬКО ПРАВДА - Правда? - спросила. - Какая правда. Стратмор тяжело дышал. - ТРАНСТЕКСТ. Правда о ТРАНСТЕКСТЕ.

Хейл появился в порядке возмещения ущерба. После фиаско Попрыгунчика. Четыре года назад конгресс, стремясь создать новый стандарт шифрования, поручил лучшим математикам страны, иными словами - сотрудникам АНБ, написать новый супералгоритм. Конгресс собирался принять закон, объявляющий этот новый алгоритм национальным стандартом, что должно было решить проблему несовместимости, с которой сталкивались корпорации, использующие разные алгоритмы. Конечно, просить АН Б приложить руку к совершенствованию системы общего пользования - это все равно что предложить приговоренному к смертной казни самому сколотить себе гроб.

Все смешалось в ее голове - лица бесчисленных мужчин, склонявшиеся над ней, потолки гостиничных номеров, в которые она смотрела, мечты о том, что когда-нибудь все это кончится и она заведет детей… Внезапно, без всякого предупреждения, тело немца выгнулось, замерло и тут же рухнуло на. Это .
