# Cracking Stream Cipher

I need to crack a stream cipher. I have a set of plain text and encrypted text pairs.

The hint to the question asks me to use entropy analysis and look at the hex dump of the encrypted text. However, I couldn't find anything useful in either of them.

What should be the approach to solve this cipher?

Try xoring two ciphertexts and look at the entropy. Also, to recover the encryption stream, xor the pt and ct. Then you could compare multiple encryption streams. –  mikeazo Feb 1 '14 at 20:48

$$plaintext1 \oplus ciphertext1 \oplus ciphertext2 = plaintext2$$
