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.
× 10
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.

Money that may be transferred electronically from one party to another during a transaction.
× 10
An authenticated encryption mode of operation for a block cipher, based on the CTR mode and the OMAC/CMAC MAC algorithm.
× 9 × 9
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…

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.
× 9
a Password Based Key Derivation Function, which can be used to derive key data or derive a "password hash" from a salt and password.
× 9
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…
× 9
an algorithm that expands a relatively short master key to a relatively large expanded key for later use in an encryption and decryption algorithm.
× 9
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…

× 8 × 8
the deliberate act of creating obfuscated code by making source or machine code difficult to understand from a human point of view.
× 8
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.
× 8
Small and/or fast ciphers and other cryptographic primitives designed for use in constrained environments, such as embedded MCUs and smart cards.
× 8
"host-proof" means that no unencrypted or insecure data is stored on the server or passed over the network.
× 8
the product of more than two primes.
× 8
the assurance that someone cannot deny something.
× 8
The Counter with CBC Mac mode, an authenticated encryption mode of operation for a block cipher based on the CTR mode and the CBC-MAC algorithm. .
× 8 × 8
a language that defines the way data is sent across dissimilar communication systems.
× 8
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
a family of cryptographically secure PRNGs; devised by Bruce Schneier and Niels Ferguson, who published it in 2003.
× 7 × 7 × 7
the common description for a set of cryptographic problems related to playing a fair game over a distance without the need for any trusted third party.
× 7
a measure of the relative frequency of letters in a cipher text sample, which facilitates cryptanalysis of poly-alphabetic ciphers by allowing determination of the per…
× 7
concerned with sending messages via electronic signals in the most efficient and error-free way.
× 7
material that can be referenced for further information on cryptography.
× 7
The RACE Integrity Primitives Evaluation Message Digest (RIPEMD) is a family of cryptographic hash functions.
× 7
A family of lightweight symmetric block-ciphers designed for good performance in hardware with block sizes ranging from 32 to 128 bits and key sizes ranging from 64 to 256 bits.
× 7
a cryptographic hash function. It was designed for the SHA-3 competition where it became a finalist, but wasn't chosen as SHA-3.
× 7
Time-lock puzzles and other cryptographic schemes intended to ensure that a message cannot be read until a certain time has passed.
× 7
Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 - Pre-Shared Key (also called WPA or WPA2 Personal) is a method of securing your network using WPA2 with the use of the optional Pre-Shared Key (PSK) authentication, which was…

The Schnorr Identification Protocol relies upon the security of the Discrete Logarithm Problem. Schnorr's protocol was introduced after, and is comparable to, the identification protocol of Fiat and S…
