Given that some signature schemes (for instance Elgamal) use an ephemeral key that cannot be reused ever. How do people usually protect against this? I'll elaborate more: if you reuse the ephemeral ...
I currently have a system which uses two keys sourced from a single key subjected to HKDF. One key is used in the Salsa20 stream ...
Given two sets of plaintexts and their corresponding ciphertexts, how does one determine the key $K$? The ciphertexts are: $$C_1= (P_1 \oplus K_0) + K_1$$ and $$C_2= (P_2 \oplus K_0) + K_1$$ $K = ...
In a situation where it is required to generate n number of keys deterministically from a single piece of seed information can we assume that b breached number of keys, no matter what the quantity ...
I was wondering how many possible private/public keys exist? If a million people – for whatever reason – would try to generate 5 keys each in the same minute (on the same date and time) is there a ...
