A tag is a keyword or label that categorizes your question with other, similar questions. Using the right tags makes it easier for others to find and answer your question.

Type to find tags:
× 8
a cryptosystem which always produces the same ciphertext for a given plaintext and key, even over separate executions of the encryption algorithm.
× 8
a form of cryptographic attack in which the attacker possesses only the encrypted message, with no corresponding plain text or segment of the key to work with.
× 8
a variant of ID-based cryptography intended to prevent the key escrow problem. Only a partial private key is generated by the key generation center (KGC) and the other …
× 8
a U.S. government computer security standard used to accredit cryptographic modules.
× 8
a construction scheme for hash functions (and other symmetric primitives) based on an unkeyed permutation. The most famous example is Keccak, which won the SHA-3 competitio…
× 8
a set of inputs used to test new and/or established cryptographic designs and/or implementations.
× 8
A symmetric block-cipher algorithm with a 128-bit block size, and key sizes up to 256 bits.
× 8
the art of chopping a secret into little bits, so that the secret can only be learned by possessing more than a threshold number of those bits.
× 8
a block cipher mode of operation, which is most commonly used when random accessible data (like a hard disk or RAM) is to be encoded.
× 7
a method for a group such as a meeting or an electorate to make a decision or express an opinion.
× 7
In cryptography, white box analysis means extracting a secret value from an implementation of a function that uses the value.
× 7
a function that is easy to perform one way, but has a secret that is required to perform the inverse calculation efficiently.
× 7
a family of permutations where the key selects a particular permutation from that family. With a tweakable blockcipher both key and tweak are used to select a permutation. So tweak a…
× 7
Calculating the value of a function for given inputs, especially, in the context of secure multi-party computation and/or homomorphic encryption, without disclosing the inputs to some or all parties c…
× 7
The Enigma Machine was a piece of cryptographic hardware used by the German military during World War II; successful cryptanalysis was routinely applied against it and the scheme was considered broken…
× 7
A distinguisher describes an adversary's advantage. In cryptography, an adversary's advantage is a measure of how successfully it can attack a cryptographic algorithm, by distinguishing it from an ide…
× 7
Money that may be transferred electronically from one party to another during a transaction.
× 7
An authenticated encryption mode of operation for a block cipher, based on the CTR mode and the OMAC/CMAC MAC algorithm.
× 7
"host-proof" means that no unencrypted or insecure data is stored on the server or passed over the network.
× 7
An adversary model formally defines the power of the adversary. It includes specifics whether the adversary is deterministic/randomized, uniform/non-uniform, interactive/non-interactive and how he int…
× 7
a family of protocols in which one party presents a question ("challenge") and another party must provide a valid answer ("response") to be authenticated.
× 7
Convergent encryption, also known as content hash keying, is simply encrypting a file using a symmetric encryption key which is the secure hash of the plaintext of the file.
× 7
In cryptanalysis and computer security, a dictionary attack is a technique for defeating a cipher or authentication mechanism by trying to determine its decryption key or pass-phrase by trying hundred…
× 7
a digraph substitution cipher. It employs a table where one letter of the alphabet is omitted, and the letters are arranged in a 5x5 grid.
× 7
In a private set intersection (PSI) protocol two parties jointly compute the intersection of their private input sets.
× 7
the assurance that someone cannot deny something.
× 7
Small and/or fast ciphers and other cryptographic primitives designed for use in constrained environments, such as embedded MCUs and smart cards.
× 7
× 6
Matrix multiplication indicates a row-by-column multiplication, where the entries in the Xth row of A are multiplied by the corresponding entries in the Yth column of B and then adding the results.
× 6
Literature describes everything that has been written and/or visualized (here: in relation cryptography), which ranges from papers to books, and from publications to presentations.
× 6
a typically short alphanumeric code used as a software copy-protection mechanism, by requiring a user to enter a valid key before they can use the software.
× 6
a padding scheme which has been standardized in [PKCS #1v29](http://www.emc.com/collateral/white-papers/h11300-pkcs-1v2-2-rsa-cryptography-standard-wp.pdf) and…
× 6
Pseudo-Random Generator
× 6
a cryptographic message authentication code (MAC) written by Daniel J. Bernstein. It can be used to verify the data integrity and the authenticity of a message.
× 6
A commutative encryption system allows a message encrypted with two different keys to be decrypted using the keys in either order.
× 6
Coding theory studies the properties of codes and their fitness for specific applications, and typically involves the removal of redundancy and the detection and/or correction of errors in transmitted…
