2.1.2 Cryptography Facts

Cryptography is the science of converting data into a secret code to hide the meaning of the message during transmission. Cryptographic systems provide the following security services: • Confidentiality, by ensuring that only authorized parties can access data. • Integrity, by verifying that data has not been altered in transit. • Authentication, by proving the identity of the sender or receiver. • Non-repudiation, by validating that communications have come from a particular sender at a particular...

Breaking A Message Encrypted With Private-Key Cryptography: Lab Analysis

To break a message encrypted with private-key cryptography, it requires either to exploit a weakness in the encryption algorithm, or to try an exhaustive search of all possible keys (brute force method). Increase in key size is an e ective remedy for this. If the key is large enough (e.g., 128 bits), such a search would take a very long time (few years), even with very powerful computers. Private-key methods are ecient and dicult to break[21]. However, one major drawback is that the key must be...
