I am researching some different constructions for combining two Password Based Key Derivation Functions in a robust manner to prevent weaknesses in a single algorithm from reducing the security of the ...
I have read this paper (pdf) which talks about measuring the entropy of thermal noise collected from camera input. They estimate the minimum entropy at about 4 bits per pixel. Probably estimating 1 ...
Suppose I have a private matrix $A$ that I want to conceal. I do the matrix multiplication $A^\prime =AK$ and $A^\prime$ is public. How can I quantitatively measure "how well" the matrix $A$ is ...
I'm writing a thesis focused on Maurer's provably-secure stream cipher. Long story short, this cipher works by expanding a short key into a long keystream and then XORring this keystream with the ...
Is there a secret sharing scheme where secrets can be weighted, and that you need a total weight of $1$ to unlock the secret? I know that you could, of course, just figure out every subset that has ...
