I'm working on software that should eventually result in a crypto file system similar to encfs. So far, i have a user password that goes through PBKDF2 using ...
Theoretically, when using a symmetric block cipher in CBC mode, the current block is dependent on the previous block. Suppose one plaintext is encrypted using CBC, and then one bit of it is changed, ...
I would like to learn more about cryptography. Let's say you encrypt multiple files with CBC encryption using the same key, but each file has unique (and pseudo random) iv. Does this weakens the ...
