One of the inputs of RSA-PSS signing and verification is the salt size. According to PKCS#1, you must know the salt size before the verfication is carried out. However, this makes interoperability ...
I read the following from Understanding Public Key Cryptography on Microsoft TechNet: Using a private key to establish identity shows that the full encryption and decryption operation was ...
Arguably the PKCS suite of standards have a profit-oriented bias as they are promoted by RSA and promote their algorithms over others in the form of RFCs and other means. I'm considering the ...
I was studying DSS from "Cryptography and Network Security" by William Stallings. What puzzled me was the DSS approach figure described in the text. It says it uses Public and Private Keys for ...
In my question "Authenticating data generated by a particular build of an open source program", Dave Cary requested that I post a question stating my real problem on a high level rather than the ...
Is it possible to construct an (asymmetric) encryption scheme from a signature scheme? If the signature scheme is deterministic and allows existential forgery (e.g. RSA), then the answer is yes ...
