I have a simple question about the use of random variables for encryption schemes, to make sure my intuition is correct. We say $P(K = k)$ to represent the probability that a particular key $k$ is ...
Does redundancy in a file or data effect performance and security of encryption? (for example for AES, if not for general case) Is it easier to encrypt something that has high redundancy or something ...
Bitcoin style blockchain… I have party(node) A, B, C and algorithm X. Algorithm X generates the first half of a target hash input - the "solution" to the problem. I want A, B and C to sign their ...
Can an encryption scheme (deterministic or not) be viewed as a pseudorandom permutation taking as input a message and returning a value of the same bit-encoding length ? Thank you.
If an encryption algorithm is meant to convert a string to another string which can then be decrypted back to the original, how could this process involve any randomness? Surely it has to be ...
RSA, DES, AES, etc. all use (relatively) complicated mathematics to encrypt some message with some key. For each of these methods, there have been several documented vulnerabilities found over the ...
