Presentation Transcript
Cryptography
• Cryptography is the science and art of transforming messages to make them secure and immune to attacks.
• It involves plaintext, encryption algorithm, ciphertext and decryption algorithm.
• Two types of cryptography exist:
• Symmetric-key cryptography and
• Public-key cryptography

Security

Symmetric-key Cryptography (SKC)
• In SKC, the same key is used by both communicating parties.
• The algorithm used for decryption is the inverse of the algorithm used for encryption.
• Efficient
• Large number of keys required for large number of communicating parties.

Security

SKC (Continued…)
• Substitution cipher
• Monoalphabetic
• Polyalphabetic
• Transpositional cipher
• Block ciphers
• P-Box
• S-Box
• Product Block
• Data Encryption Standard (DES)

Security

• Data encryption is based on character.
• Monoalphabetic
• One character will be represented by only one other character.
• Polyalphabetic
• One character may be represented by more than just one other character depending on the encryption algorithm used.

Security

Block Cipher
• Data encryption is based on block of bits
• P-box
• Transposition at bit level
• S-box
• Combines substitution and transposition (P-box)
• Product block
• More complex combination of P- and S-box
• DES
• Complex algorithm applied by the US government for nonmilitary and nonclassified use.

Security

Public-key Cryptography (PKC)
• Two different keys are used, private key and public key.
• Private key is known only by the receiver.
• Public key is used by the senders.
• The number of keys required for a large number of users is greatly reduced.
• Complex algorithm used.
• Sender authentication is required

Security

RSA
• The private key is a pair of numbers N and e.
• The public key is also a pair of numbers N and d. N are common to both parties.
• To encrypt a message:
• C = Pe mod N

where P is the plain text value

• To decrypt a message:
• P = Cd mod N

where C is the ciphertext value

Security

RSA (Continued…)
• To ensure the success of its application:
• Choose two large prime numbers p and q.
• Compute N = p x q.
• Choose e (less than N) such that e and (p-1)(q-1) are relatively prime (having no common factor other than 1)
• Choose d such that (e x d) mod [(p-1)(q-1)] is equal to 1
