### Finding out corrupted S Box value in DES implementation?

I am using DES encryption when writing a file in an embedded device. When I decrypt the file. I get a partially corrupted file. Kind of randomly some 8-byte blocks are corrupted. Some are not. When I ...

### Proving DES complementation property: y = DES(k,x) ⟹ /y = DES(/k, /x)

Below is my proof for this. I was not sure if this is correct and was also a little confused regarding the complementarity property of DES. Does this property mean there is a serious vulnerability in ...

### Using the MAC to verify if Cipher Only attack has succeeded

I am working on an experiment to compare the efficiency of brute-force attacking block ciphers like AES and DES with reduced key sizes for different programming languages and library implementations. ...

### Are there any other applications of machine learning to cryptography?

I've checked a bunch of articles about machine learning and cryptography and derived from them three distinct possibilities: Use ML to approximate a cipher as a function. Article "Neuro-Cryptanalysis ...

### Showing if y=DES(k, x), then /y = DES(/k, /x) [duplicate]

The textbook gives a similar example of proving the below problem: Based on this, how would I go about showing $y={DES(k, x)} => \overline y=DES(\overline k, \overline x)$, within the same format ...

### About the Algebraic Normal Form (ANF) of S-Box in DES

I've thought up a way to represent the transformation of S-Box in DES by ANF. Let $x_i\;(1\le i\le 6)$ be the input of an S-Box, $y_i\;(1\le i\le 4)$ be the output, for example, then y_1= 1\oplus ...

### Is DES/2DES/3DES still used?

I checked a related question, but I still did not find the answer I was looking for. Specifically, do we have any statistics on the usage of DES/2DES/3DES? It seems from here that credit card systems ...

### How to solve this S Box?

I have performed the XOR and the result comes as 1001. Now my confusion is that in standard S-Box (DES) the input is 6 bit where the first and last bit together specifies row and 4-middle bits column. ...

### Which block cipher modes are best used in real life situations?

For an exam I'm studying for, I'm wondering what block cipher modes are best to use in certain situations. We learned about these block cipher modes: ECB, CBC, CFB (+ s-bit), OFB (+ s-bit) and CTR. ...

### AES and DES - reusing the same round keys

Both DES and AES use key expansion to generate the round keys (for Feistel network or for the AddRoundKey operation). Each round uses a different key. Why do we need that? Why we cannot use the same ...
