Complexity describes - in simple words - how hard (complex) it is to reach a specific goal; and under which conditions. In cryptography, this mostly ends up in using the complexity theory to analyze things. One of the main goals of complexity theory is to prove lower bounds on the resources (e.g. ...
The strength of symmetric and asymmetric encryption schemes scales with the key length, but there is a difference between symmetric algorithms like AES and asymmetric algorithms like RSA. For ...
What is the minimum number of unique pairs of digests and inputs to a one-time pass needed to verify that a secret is equal to a ...
Recently, I found a function that is performed on a sequence to return another sequence. All known algorithms for finding the input, given the output are of exponential complexity. I want to propose ...
