I'm reading our school's notes for cryptography, and it does a good job explaining CBC and DES in detail, but it fails to provide good information on how they are related.
From what I've researched so far, it appears that CBC is essentially a series of block ciphers, and DES can be used for the block cipher encryption process.
Is that it, or are there some other ways these are related? I'm really lost here/new to cryptography, and any help would be really appreciated. Thanks a lot!
