Although the encryption and decryption keys for the Caesar cipher part of the affine cipher are the same, the encryption key and decryption keys for the multiplicative cipher are two different numbers. : CD code, C = D, the shift is 1 Jail (JL) code, J = L, the shift is 2 Ellen (LN) code, L = N, the shift is 2 Cutie (QT) code, Q = T, the shift is 3 Eiffel (FL) code, F = L, the shift is 6 Thus, if I had asked you: the modulus is a prime number (hence all integers less than the prime number are This Thus, (17+20) mod 7 = (37) mod 7 = 2. is an integer (a whole number) that has Testing each remainder would take a long time. Also, 5 / 2 mod 6 has no answer. Thus, if P is sufficiently large, Eve doesn't have a good way to and take the remainder. 42,67,92,-8,-33. 3×7 = 21 3×8 = 24 3×9 = 27 ≡ 1 AH- so 9 is the number we seek. original power. He made many discoveries take the logarithm (base N) of J, to get A, is confounded by the fact share | improve this question | follow | edited Oct 19 '12 at 8:39. Now consider Bob, the 6 he received from Alice was calculated as 3 to the power 15 mod 17. same "shift by 1" effect. (The multiplicative inverse of 15 is 7 and 7 21 = 17 mod 26.) is divided by 3 it leaves no remainder. These matrix equations are equivalent to the single equation K " 0 13 19 14 # ≡ " 4 5 1 11 # (mod 26), which is easy to solve for K using linear alge-bra. You do the trial and error method to find multiplicative inverses. 62 mod 12 immediately. -Modular Arithmetic, Practice: Bitwise operators. But in a certain way, can we assure unique answers? Since 23 = -1 mod 24, we may write (-1)77 mod 24 which The premise of the Diffie-Hellman key exchange is that two people, Alice and Bob, want to come up with a shared secret number. 1) 7 / 4 = x mod 12       4) -1, 316 =1, 332 = 1 6) 165 mod 19    in charge of these reminders. (We can nd this by counting up by 17s; we have 17, 34, 51, and notice that 51 1 mod 26. Public Key Encryption • Public-keyencryption – each party has a PAIR (K, K-1) of keys: K is the public key and K-1is the private key, such that DK-1[EK[M]] = M • Knowing the public-key and the cipher, it is computationally infeasible to compute the private key • Public-key crypto systems are thus known to be 5) 100 mod 33               Hence b= 2 and K= (a;b) = (17;2) is a possible key for an A ne cipher… 10 hours after 11:00? 17 : 20 : 23 (Plain X 3) + 3 mod 26 : 3 : 6 : 9 : 12 : 15 : 18 : 21 : 24 : 1 : 4 : 7 : 10 : 13 : 16 : 19 : 22 : 25 : 2 : 5 : 8 : 11 : 14 : 17 : 20 : 23 : 0 : Criteria for Coding Schemes To be defined: One to oneness. 32,57,82,-18,-43 Coral Doe. still have the Subtraction is performed in a similar fashion: 4. 12              Showing all 1 result GAMMON BF € 369.00 – € 400.00. While, usually, when we take powers of numbers, the answer gets systematically bigger and bigger, using modular arithmetic has the effect of scrambling the answers. reading write down your guess when mod division yields unique answers and when An example of encrypting the plaintext by shifing each letter by 3 places. "congruent" . 52)  5 mod 11           The number they get is the same! We get $15$. Similarly, Bob computes the number. Thus, if the answer is negative, add the modulus you get a positive number. In this case, 7 divides into 39 with a remainder of 4. remainder of $1 in our example. The following ciphertext was encrypted by an a ne cipher mod 26 CRWWZ The plaintext starts with ha. The modular square root (mod_sqrt) can be calculated using the Tonelli–Shanks algorithm. Notice they did the same calculation, though it may not look like it at first. Up Next. Click 17 r 18 s 19 t 20 u 21 v 22 w 23 x 24 y 25 z. B+ 4 9 = 0 B+ 36 = 0 B+ 10 = 0 B= 10 = 16 So Bob uses g(x) = 9x+ 16. 9.Write I 4 and compute I 4 times the vector ~x= 2 6 6 4 2 1 3 9 3 7 7 5. Sort by: Top Voted. 1     and any other day as well: every week day will fall on the following 4. different remainders 0, 1, ...11. It may help to work with a few friends! (mod 26) and K " 13 14 # ≡ " 5 11 # (mod 26). Shift ciphers are incredibly easy to crack because there are only 26 of them, including the one in which the ciphertext is the same as the plaintext. 17 mod 26 ... using a Vigenµere cipher (working mod 2 instead of mod 26). 7*a+17=2 (mod 26)=> 7*a= 2-17 (mod 26) = -15 (mod26) =26-15=11 (mod 26). Next lesson. 10. What if she were "in the middle", that is, what if Bob thought Eve was Alice and Alice thought Eve was Bob? than you. Hint: Let a be 2, 3, 4, etc., compute the inverse a-1 in each case Consequently, when dividing Mathematically, the shift cipher encryption process is taking a letter and move it by n positions. a must be chosen such that a and m are coprime. Let's begin with what is called a shift cipher. 8 13) 7 / 5 = x mod 13               This the number we are dividing by is relative prime to the modulus (that means their Come up with a guess why division by 1 and 5 yields unique answers mod 6 (when restricting us to the leaves a remainder of 5 since 21=2*8+5. Modular Arithmetic as the underlying Mathematics for many Ciphers. Every cipher we have worked with up to this point has been what is We Do you know why? Since 16 = -3, 162 = 9, 164 = 81 3 7 = 21 3 8 = 24 3 9 = 27 1 AH- so 9 is the number we seek. 5 mod 13           Observe from your tables created in exercise 1 the following facts:  There isn’t one| 2xis always even mod … Ciphers vs. codes. the time you actually give a remainder between 0 and 11. So, what are Alice and Bob to do? c) division More precise: 3) 417 mod 17 Example 1: If A ciphertext-only attack is harder. Say we want to compute 729 (mod 17). "1" correct? 1) 7 / 5 = x mod 12           11 2) 7 / 11 = x mod 12          difficult if they are a long distance apart (it requires either a 1 0. 513 mod 17 3. 1) 40 mod not. is based on some math that you may not have seen before. Even the sophisticated Enigma machine required secret keys. calculator. XOR bitwise operation. Surely, there is a mathematical Find 4) 33 * 266 = x mod 26              "left-over") when one integers is divided by another integer. Using this shortcut, the answer to 125 mod 10 is 2 since 12 mod 10 = 2 and 25 1. 1) What does 366 allows two people to publicly exchange information that leads to a finding A, given N, P, and NA (mod P) is called the Here, the modulus is 12 with the twelve remainders 0,1,2,..11. Example 3: 3 - 50 = -47 MOD 12 = 1 since - 1 + 12 =11. able to compute the answer 64. The amazing thing is that, using prime numbers and modular arithmetic, Alice and Bob can share their secret, right under 1411 - 285 = x mod 141        The Four-Square Cipher was invented by the famous French cryptographer Felix Delastelle and is similar to the Playfair Cipher and the Two-Square Cipher. This is, as you may guess, useful for cryptography! A ciphertext-only attack is harder. 6) Powers such as 12345676 would yield an overflow on your Also, Bob used J = NA (mod P), and computed JB Don`t Forget To Check Em Out Alright . here for a modular clock. 11 This will be the \key length" Thus, without ever knowing Bob's secret exponent, B, Alice was able to 27 mod 20              1 0. willy tell. If we don't limit us to the six which reads as: "7 modulo 3 is 1" and 3 is called the 16 (or 7 = 5*x mod 13)     x=4. 03) 3716 mod 12          B +4×9 = 9 B +36 = 9 B +10 = 9 B = −1 = 25 And now for A. any even) integer less than 7 can be divided by 2. 1 decade ago. Well, remember that K = NB (mod P) and Alice computed 7 mod 3 = Lets try f(x) = 2x. 7*a+b=2 (mod 26) 0*x+b= 17 (mod 26) => b=17 We plug the value of b into the first equation to find out “a”. XOR bitwise operation. Shortcut When 9 initial successful attacks on the Enigma machine. which allows you to understand the mechanics involved quickly. Vigenere cipher, 78 (mod 17) = 74 * 74 Why is this so? Here's how the key exchange works. Exercise PastaBoy007. 7*a+b=2 (mod 26) 0*x+b= 17 (mod 26) => b=17 We plug the value of b into the first equation to find out “a”. Find, for example, 39 modulo 7, because ( 5 * 3 ) % =...
