### How fragile is 3DES nowadays?

Mastercard, Visa, and several other organizations use 3DES to encrypt and decrypt credit card data. The sweet32 attack placed 3DES in the spotlight, but how fragile is 3DES for a very small amount of ...

### DES calculations [closed]

In DES the effective key length is 56 bits. Assume that we are allowed to modify the key length to 64 bits. How much longer time would a brute force attack require in the 64-bit setting compared with ...

### Periodic re-keying during full drive encryption

A man encrypted a hard drive in 1996 using three key 3-DES with a 64 bit IV and CBC mode in the following manner using known 1990s algorithms on a 1996 PC. Here is how he did it. Start with a ...

### Can we use Bitcoin miner to break 2Key 3DES, if yes how long it takes?

As ASICs are specifically designed to generate the hash for a block of a block chain. which is much faster than other GPUs which are used to break 2key-3DES. can we use Array of ASICs to break 2key-...

### Help needed for IBM KCV

I found old key letters used in EFT HSMs with TDES keys, parted in two halfs. The check value printed on this letters is called IBM CV and doubled IBM CV. My newer HSM does not support this kind of ...

### 3DES security when K1=K3

I am mainly looking for security on 2-key $\operatorname{3DES}$ implementation where $K_1=K_3$. How hard or easy is it to crack $\operatorname{3DES}$ when $K_1=K_3$?

### Disrupting MITM attack against 3DES by intermingling plaintext and inter-mediate ciphertext between rounds

Let's say someone implements 3DES with three separate 56-bit keys and an attacker is attempting to execute a MITM attack. Here is the encryption plan designed to attempt to disrupt the MITM attack, or ...

### Frequency Analysis on DES, AES, 3DES using Cryptool2

I am trying to analyze symmetric block ciphers like DES, 3DES and AES, using Cryptool 2. I want to do a frequency analysis on each of these ciphers, in order to comment whether this is an effective ...

### TDES (Triple DES) DUKPT decryption

We have a POS (Ingenico) that uses DES3-CBC encryption using a derived key. It sends encrypted data, and 10 bytes size Key Serial Number (KSN). I tried to use ...

### Is there a feasible way to reconstruct the key from the (Triple-)DES round key?

Assume there is a closed source application which uses Triple-DES with a fixed/hardcoded key to decrypt large amounts of data. Someone managed to extract the round keys from a process memory dump and ...

### Why didn't people redesign the key scheduling algorithm of DES to use longer keys instead of using 3-DES?

To overcome short key length of DES, Triple DES was devised. What would go wrong or why didn't people redesign the key scheduling algorithm to use longer keys?
