Start reading Book Description ". The book the National Security Agency wanted never to be published. Dobb's Journal ". The book details how programmers and electronic communications professionals can use cryptography-the technique of enciphering and deciphering messages-to maintain the privacy of computer data. It describes dozens of cryptography algorithms, gives practical advice on how to implement them into cryptographic software, and shows how they can be used to solve security problems.
Thus, the file system can recognise redundancies from the encrypted versions of the files without knowing the plain text contents and can replace redundant files by a short link to a single storage location where a complete version of the encrypted file is stored in the distributed file system.
In addition, the distributed file system can detect duplicated file portions even if other portions of the file do not have matching counterparts in the system. An access value is associated with each encrypted block to decrypt the block, and a verification value is associated with each encrypted block to verify the encrypted block independently of other blocks A2, paragraphs , The access value is an encrypted form of the hash value of the cleartext file block see also paragraph , whereas the verification value is a hash value of the encrypted block paragraphs and Only an authorised user is able to decrypt the access value to recover the hash value with which the block was encrypted.
As the verification value is a hash value of the encrypted block, the integrity of each encrypted block can be verified directly, without decryption and without any knowledge of the keys used to encrypt the file A2, paragraph Above all, when the distributed file system is checked for duplicate files or file portions , the system does not have to compare complete ciphertexts but it is sufficient to compare their hash values i.
If the hash values differ, it is clear that the ciphertexts differ which, in turn, implies that the plaintexts differ. If the hash values match, the ciphertexts normally also match this can be confirmed by comparing the full ciphertexts. Article 2 EPC - Amendment within content of the application as filed 2.
That step is specified by original claim 8 dependent on original claim 1 and detailed by original claim 9 which introduces an "access value" and a "verification value", those values being defined e. As present claim 1 reflects this teaching, the Board is satisfied that the subject-matter of the claim does not extend beyond the content of the application as filed.
Article 84 EPC - Clarity and conciseness of the claims; support by the description 3. At the same time, the definition is precise enough to exclude undisclosed or speculative embodiments. Essential features of the method e. Hence, the claim is also adequately supported by the description. They are also clear and supported by the description. Claim 38 relates to a computer program for performing the method of claim 1. Claim 39 specifies a method for using the verification value formed by the method of claim 1.
Claim 48 defines a component for performing the method of claim 1. Claim 60 relates to a distributed file system comprising such a component. Article 52 1 2 3 EPC - Eligibility for patent protection 4. A technical effect consists not only in the encryption of files but also in an efficient verification and identification of encrypted files in the distributed file system. A technical effect consists not only in the way the files have been encrypted and provided with verification values but also in the use of the verification values to identify encrypted blocks in the distributed file system.
On the other hand, the claims on file do not relate to the subject-matter disclosed in Figure 12 or 13 producing and signing a manifest.
Hence, the Board has no doubt that the present claims are entitled to the filing date of A0, i.
Article 54 3 EPC - Post-published prior art 6. He is the author of E-Mail Security Wiley and is a frequent lecturer on cryptography, computer security, and privacy. Free Access.

If we were using one-byte CFB mode, for example, each incoming character is placed into a shift register the same size as the block, encrypted, and the block transmitted. At the receiving side, the ciphertext is decrypted and the extra bits in the block i. CFB mode generates a keystream based upon the previous ciphertext the initial key comes from an Initialization Vector [IV].
In this mode, a single bit error in the ciphertext affects both this block and the following one. Output Feedback OFB mode is a block cipher implementation conceptually similar to a synchronous stream cipher.
OFB prevents the same plaintext block from generating the same ciphertext block by using an internal feedback mechanism that generates the keystream independently of both the plaintext and ciphertext bitstreams.
In OFB, a single bit error in ciphertext yields a single bit error in the decrypted plaintext. Counter CTR mode is a relatively modern addition to block ciphers. Unlike ECB, however, CTR uses different key inputs to different blocks so that two identical blocks of plaintext will not result in the same ciphertext. Finally, each block of ciphertext has specific location within the encrypted message.
DES is a Feistel block-cipher employing a bit key that operates on bit blocks. DES has a complex set of rules and transformations that were designed specifically to yield fast hardware implementations and slow software implementations, although this latter point is not significant today since the speed of computer processors is several orders of magnitude faster today than even twenty years ago.
DES was based somewhat on an earlier cipher from Feistel called Lucifer which, some sources report, had a bit key. This was rejected, partially in order to fit the algorithm onto a single chip and partially because of the National Security Agency NSA. By combining 64 additional key bits to the plaintext prior to encryption, effectively increases the keylength to bits.
The algorithm can use a variable block length and key length; the latest specification allowed any combination of keys lengths of , , or bits and blocks of length , , or bits. They, too, have approved a number of cipher suites for various applications. Also available internationally. RC1: Designed on paper but never implemented.
It's code has not been made public although many companies have licensed RC2 for use in their products. Described in RFC RC3: Found to be breakable during development. RC4: A stream cipher using variable-sized keys; it is widely used in commercial cryptography products. More detail about RC4 and a little about Spritz can be found below in Section 5.
RC5 : A block-cipher supporting a variety of block sizes 32, 64, or bits , key sizes, and number of encryption passes over the data. Key lengths can vary from 32 to bits in length.
Twofish : A bit block cipher using , , or bit keys. Designed to be highly secure and highly flexible, well-suited for large microprocessors, 8-bit smart card microprocessors, and dedicated hardware. Camellia has some characteristics in common with AES: a bit block size, support for , , and bit key lengths, and suitability for both software and hardware implementations on common bit processors as well as 8-bit processors e.
Also described in RFC Designed for hardware and software implementations, and is resistant to differential and linear cryptanalysis.
KASUMI is the intended confidentiality and integrity algorithm for both message content and signaling data for emerging mobile communications systems. SEED : A block cipher using bit blocks and bit keys. ARIA : A bit block cipher employing , , and bit keys to encrypt bit blocks in 12, 14, and 16 rounds, depending on the key size.
Developed by large group of researchers from academic institutions, research institutes, and federal agencies in South Korea in , and subsequently named a national standard. CLEFIA is one of the new-generation lightweight blockcipher algorithms designed after AES, offering high performance in software and hardware as well as a lightweight implementation in hardware.
Skipjack : SKC scheme proposed, along with the Clipper chip , as part of the never-implemented Capstone project. Although the details of the algorithm were never made public, Skipjack was a block cipher using an bit key and 32 iteration cycles per bit block.
