What's the best packet cipher mode for use with UDP for example? Advantages or disadvantages of any alternatives?
Cipher modes typically assume data is streamed or read from a reliable channel with guaranteed ordering. However, many communication transports, such as UDP, are not reliable and don't guarantee order ...
I read about the AEZ encryption scheme as presented at the CAESAR competition. To me it seems like a construction of an arbitrary length block cipher from a smaller one. The key component is the ...
I am a programmer familiar with C/C++ and Python. Lately, we got an assignment from a team asking us to work on one of their projects: we need to make a small program to encrypt a large file using ...
Suppose that I want to encrypt some data using two different algorithm chained (e.g. AES and Serpent) and harnessing the benefits of CBC. I can do: ...
