Anubis: Anubis is a block cipher, co-designed by Vincent Rijmen who was one of the designers of Rijndael. Anubis is a block cipher, performing substitution-permutation operations on 128-bit blocks and employing keys of length 128 to 3200 bits (in 32-bit increments). Anubis works very much like Rijndael. Although submitted to the NESSIE project, it did not make the final cut for inclusion.

Light Encryption Device (LED): Designed in 2011, LED is a lightweight, 64-bit block cipher supporting 64- and 128-bit keys. LED is designed for RFID tags, sensor networks, and other applications with devices constrained by memory or compute power.

MARS: MARS is a block cipher developed by IBM and was one of the five finalists in the AES development process. MARS employs 128-bit blocks and a variable key length from 128 to 448 bits. The MARS document stresses the ability of the algorithm's design for high speed, high security, and the ability to efficiently and effectively implement the scheme on a wide range of computing devices.

Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC): A PKC algorithm based upon elliptic curves. ECC can offer levels of security with small keys comparable to RSA and other PKC methods. It was designed for devices with limited compute power and/or memory, such as smartcards and PDAs. More detail about ECC can be found below in Section 5.8. Other references include the Elliptic Curve Cryptography page and the Online ECC Tutorial page, both from Certicom. See also RFC 6090 for a review of fundamental ECC algorithms and The Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) for details about the use of ECC for digital signatures.

Until the mid-1990s or so, brute force attacks were beyond the capabilities of computers that were within the budget of the attacker community. By that time, however, significant compute power was typically available and accessible. General-purpose computers such as PCs were already being used for brute force attacks. For serious attackers with money to spend, such as some large companies or governments, Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) or Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASIC) technology offered the ability to build specialized chips that could provide even faster and cheaper solutions than a PC. As an example, the AT&T Optimized Reconfigurable Cell Array (ORCA) FPGA chip cost about $200 and could test 30 million DES keys per second, while a $10 ASIC chip could test 200 million DES keys per second; compare that to a PC which might be able to test 40,000 keys per second. Distributed attacks, harnessing the power of up to tens of thousands of powerful CPUs, are now commonly employed to try to brute-force crypto keys.

So, how big is big enough? DES, invented in 1975, was still in use at the turn of the century, nearly 25 years later. If we take that to be a design criteria (i.e., a 20-plus year lifetime) and we believe Moore's Law ("computing power doubles every 18 months"), then a key size extension of 14 bits (i.e., a factor of more than 16,000) should be adequate. The 1975 DES proposal suggested 56-bit keys; by 1995, a 70-bit key would have been required to offer equal protection and an 85-bit key necessary by 2015.

In early 1999, Shamir (of RSA fame) described a new machine that could increase factorization speed by 2-3 orders of magnitude. Although no detailed plans were provided nor is one known to have been built, the concepts of TWINKLE (The Weizmann Institute Key Locating Engine) could result in a specialized piece of hardware that would cost about $5000 and have the processing power of 100-1000 PCs. There still appear to be many engineering details that have to be worked out before such a machine could be built. Furthermore, the hardware improves the sieve step only; the matrix operation is not optimized at all by this design and the complexity of this step grows rapidly with key length, both in terms of processing time and memory requirements. Nevertheless, this plan conceptually puts 512-bit keys within reach of being factored. Although most PKC schemes allow keys that are 1024 bits and longer, Shamir claims that 512-bit RSA keys "protect 95% of today's E-commerce on the Internet." (See Bruce Schneier's Crypto-Gram (May 15, 1999) for more information.)

As a final note, CAs are not immune to attack and certificates themselves are able to be counterfeited. One of the first such episodes occurred at the turn of the century; on January 29 and 30, 2001, two VeriSign Class 3 code-signing digital certificates were issued to an individual who fraudulently claimed to be a Microsoft employee (CERT/CC CA-2001-04 and Microsoft Security Bulletin MS01-017 - Critical). Problems have continued over the years; good write-ups on this can be found at "Another Certification Authority Breached (the 12th!)" and "How Cybercrime Exploits Digital Certificates." Readers are also urged to read "Certification Authorities Under Attack: A Plea for Certificate Legitimation" (Oppliger, R., January/February 2014, IEEE Internet Computing, 18(1), 40-47).

There is actually another constraint on G, namely that it must be primitive with respect to N. Primitive is a definition that is a little beyond the scope of our discussion but basically G is primitive to N if the set of N-1 values of Gi mod N for i = (1,N-1) are all different. As an example, 2 is not primitive to 7 because the set of powers of 2 from 1 to 6, mod 7 (i.e., 21 mod 7, 22 mod 7, ..., 26 mod 7) = 2,4,1,2,4,1. On the other hand, 3 is primitive to 7 because the set of powers of 3 from 1 to 6, mod 7 = 3,2,6,4,5,1.

Now, this might look a bit complex and, indeed, the mathematics does take a lot of computer power given the large size of the numbers; since p and q may be 100 digits (decimal) or more, d and e will be about the same size and n may be over 200 digits. Nevertheless, a simple example may help. In this example, the values for p, q, e, and d are purposely chosen to be very small and the reader will see exactly how badly these values perform, but hopefully the algorithm will be adequately demonstrated:

NIST finally declared DES obsolete in 2004, and withdrew FIPS PUB 46-3, 74, and 81 (Federal Register, July 26, 2004, 69(142), 44509-44510). Although other block ciphers have replaced DES, it is still interesting to see how DES encryption is performed; not only is it sort of neat, but DES was the first crypto scheme commonly seen in non-governmental applications and was the catalyst for modern "public" cryptography and the first public Feistel cipher. DES still remains in many products — and cryptography students and cryptographers will continue to study DES for years to come.

The mainstream cryptographic community has long held that DES's 56-bit key was too short to withstand a brute-force attack from modern computers. Remember Moore's Law: computer power doubles every 18 months. Given that increase in power, a key that could withstand a brute-force guessing attack in 1975 could hardly be expected to withstand the same attack a quarter century later.

The DES Challenge III, launched in January 1999, was broken is less than a day by the combined efforts of Deep Crack and distributed.net. This is widely considered to have been the final nail in DES's coffin.

The third, and final phase, of the TLS protocol handshake is Authentication, during which the server is authenticated (and, optionally, the client), keys are confirmed, and the integrity of the handshake assured. The messages exchanged during this phase include:

Since the ECC key sizes are so much shorter than comparable RSA keys, the length of the public key and private key is much shorter in elliptic curve cryptosystems. This results into faster processing times, and lower demands on memory and bandwidth; some studies have found that ECC is faster than RSA for signing and decryption, but slower for signature verification and encryption. ECC is particularly useful in applications where memory, bandwidth, and/or computational power is limited (e.g., a smartcard or smart device) and it is in this area that ECC use has been growing.

The search for a replacement to DES started in January 1997 when NIST announced that it was looking for an Advanced Encryption Standard. In September of that year, they put out a formal Call for Algorithms and in August 1998 announced that 15 candidate algorithms were being considered (Round 1). In April 1999, NIST announced that the 15 had been whittled down to five finalists (Round 2): MARS (multiplication, addition, rotation and substitution) from IBM; Ronald Rivest's RC6; Rijndael from a Belgian team; Serpent, developed jointly by a team from England, Israel, and Norway; and Twofish, developed by Bruce Schneier. In October 2000, NIST announced their selection: Rijndael.

One final editorial comment. TrueCrypt was not broken or otherwise compromised. It was withdrawn by its developers for reasons that have not yet been made public but there is no evidence to assume that TrueCrypt has been damaged in any way; on the contrary, two audits, completed in April 2014 and April 2015, found no evidence of backdoors or malicious code. See Steve Gibson's TrueCrypt: Final Release Repository page for more information!

S/MIME is a powerful mechanism and is widely supported by many e-mail clients. To use your e-mail client's S/MIME functionality, you will need to have an S/MIME certificate (Figure 36). Several sites provide free S/MIME certificates for personal use, such as

For obvious reasons, TESLA requires loosely synchronized clocks between the sender and the receivers, but is not really intended for real-time services that cannot tolerate any delay. Check out the RFC or the paper by Perrig, Canetti, Tygar, and Song in RSA CryptoBytes for more detail. A light-weight version of the protocol, called µTESLA, was designed for sensor networks that have limited processing power, limited memory, and a real-time communication requirement. This version provides nearly immediate distribution of the authentication key and RC5 encryption. µTESLA is described in a paper by Perrig, Szewczyk, Tygar, Wen, and Culler in the ACM Journal of Wireless Networks.
