Book Review:

Document Description
This document is used as lecture notes for Methods of Cryptanalysis course, at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, The Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel.

Cryptanalysis is an ancient art of analyzing and breaking ciphers. It is also a relatively new modern science, which becomes more and more popular with and advent of cryptography in our everyday life thanks to the Internet. The aim of the document is to show a broad range of cryptanalytic techniques starting from attacks on classical substitution ciphers and up to the state of the art modern attacks. The emphasis will be on the analysis of block-ciphers, although stream ciphers and hash functions will also receive attention.

The document consists of:

  1. Introduction to Crypto
  2. Definitions of Classical Ciphers
  3. Cryptanalysis of the Classical Ciphers
  4. Cryptography in Transition (Enigma) [from mechanical devices to electronics]
  5. Cryptanalysis of the Enigma (batons, Rejewski's theorem)
  6. Shannon's theory, Plaintext recognition techniques
  7. Shannon's theory (cont.)
  8. Feistel ciphers (Lucifer, IBM), DES.
  9. Hellman's Tradeoff. Properties of Random functions
  10. Is DES a pure cipher? Differential Cryptanalysis.
  11. Differential Cryptanalysis. Design criteria of DES.
  12. Attack on full 16-round DES. Extensions of DC.
  13. Linear Cryptanalysis.
  14. Linear Cryptanalysis. (cont.)
  15. Modern Methods of Cryptanalysis
  16. Modern Cryptanalysis. AES and other ciphers.

The document will be self-contained and may be of interest to both mathematicians and computer scientists.
