According to the above cryptanalysis on Nikooghadam et al.'s protocol, first, the information {[B.sub.i],r} in smart card and the symmetric encryption key [A.sub.i] are used in the login request phase of their protocol, so that the attacker can perform off-line guessing.

The smaller the LP, the stronger the ability of the S-box for fighting against linear cryptanalysis attacks, and vice versa.
Large farms of compute clusters are setup to do Bitcoin mining, and without much effort, they could easily be setup for cryptanalysis as a service.
A parallel between block ciphers based on chaotic systems and standard block ciphers is made in [2], demonstrating by well-known cryptanalysis techniques that the former are as good as the latter.
Beyond the obvious significance of discovering a new manuscript and the fascinating historical cryptanalysis that brought it to light, "A Brief Reply" supplements and sharpens what we know of Roger Williams' final years.
Many stream ciphers use a de-facto RC4 standard for meeting specific requirements, such as the limited storage size and power of the devices; however, there are many weaknesses found in stream ciphers caused by mathematical relationships between the key, ciphertext, and plaintext which attackers can use to assess the security of the cryptographic algorithms via cryptanalysis. Thus, the goal is to create a sequence of keys that approaches true randomness [8].

As Chief Signal Officer Mauborgne would become deeply involved and greatly responsible for the success of two pivotal Signal Corps projects that would be crucial to Allied success in World War II, radar and cryptanalysis. Because both projects were secretive by nature, and he retired just prior to Pearl Harbor, his major contribution to the war effort has been largely overlooked and lost to history.
Alan Turing has received countless posthumous tributes for his cryptanalysis and for his other contributions in math and science.
