### Paillier estimate attack costs on short keys

I was thinking about how to use the homeomorphic property of that cryptosystem to achieve not a "semantic security" but a less ambitous obfuscation of the source code (an ipotetical scenario ...

### Choosing a suitable prime for accumulators

I am trying to work out accumulators and generate $S = \{ e_1,e_2 \ldots, e_n \}$ from this (Section 3.4 - Choosing a Suitable Prime). For each element of $e_i$ compute its representation $x_i$.(This ...

### Which RSA keys are actually attacked In practice?

I understand that it is important to check how hard it is to attack RSA keys, but I assume at some key size attackers would not even try. Real attacks are carried out by exploiting mistakes in the ...

### 80-bit security and attack time

Many designer claimed that their cryptography scheme has 80-bit security. So how to calculate the time of attcking this 80-bit security cryptography scheme, such as 80-bit security RSA using a kind of ...

### How should I address message size limits in RSA encryption?

I am making an end-to-end encryption software program in Java using RSA. I am using BigIntegers and its number theory methods. (I know this is a very slow approach, but I just want to learn to the ...

### RSA finding p and q integer with condition

I'm given $N=p\,q$ and told that $44\,p\approx 17\,q$ (with the value given for $N$ some 49-digit integer 8124642558124642555899928124642555899924479992447). In ...

### How long to bruteforce a RSA key [duplicate]

Suppose I have a 2048 bit RSA public key, and want to brute force the corresponding private key. I guess there are 2048^16 possible combinations? How long would this take me to brute force with an i7,...

### Reducing a 64 digit integer to 10 digit

Situation:- I am using Python. I am using RSA and I am using two 64 bit keys. I am not an cryptographer . I can provide you the RSA code if needed but i am not posting it as it doesn't have to do ...

### Will a list of all prime numbers upto certain number of bits compromise crytopgraphic algorithms based on prime factorization? [duplicate]

I understand that many cryptographic algorithms depend on the difficulty of large prime factorization. Will a list of all prime numbers upto certain number of bits make it easy for an attacker to ...

### How does RSA encrypt a message? Are the message packets chained together?

This question is quite related to this one, but I am looking for more details. I am writing a very basic implementation to demonstrate how RSA works. My current implementation generates key pairs ...

### Is a RSA 2048 bits public key secure [duplicate]

I realize servers such as Google, Yahoo, which use RSA has 2048 bits public key. After comparing those keys, I realize that the public keys share a common property, that is first 9 bytes and last 5 ...
