From this question I understand that, for a block cipher, using CBC is better than ECB. It seems that if one only has part of the cipher text, then decryption is difficult because the decryption ...
I am just wondering what is the most common, or most used, block cipher mode used that goes with CTS? Is it “ECB” or “CBC”?
I came across some code in our project that encrypts usernames (limited to 50 chars, most are less than 10) using the following parameters: IV size is 16 bytes Key size is 32 bytes Algorithm is ...
I need to store several million Payment Card Numbers (PCNs) securely in a mainframe database (that is, 'at rest'). I assume that any attacker will have access to all of the stored data. I assume the ...
Can someone tell me which mode out of ECB and CBC is better, and how to decide which mode to use? Are there any other modes which are better?
