Is there any known differential-linear attack on full round DES? I couldn't found any and couldn't work on this due to time restriction.

  • $\begingroup$ It's unclear what the question means by "Differential-linear attack". Is it asked if the differential cryptanalysis and linear cryptanalysis of DES work on full DES with all rounds? What's left of the question after reading the summary of the linked material? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ the OP should clarify but it may be related to his other recent question crypto.stackexchange.com/questions/86160/… $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


For this particular type of attack, the best it can do is attack 10 rounds of DES, with 2^50 time complexity and 2^20 plaintexts.

  • $\begingroup$ I was referring to this attack, as @Modal Nest mentioned. Thanks for the answer, appreciated ^^ $\endgroup$ Commented Nov 19, 2020 at 19:27
