ICS 180: Introduction to Cryptography 6/03/2004 Homework 6 Due Thursday , 6/10/2004 1 Symmetric encryptions from a PRP Let P : { 0 , 1 } τ ×{ 0 , 1 } m →{ 0 , 1 } m be a PRP. Assume that m is polynomial in τ . Assume that every PPT adversary running in time t has at most advantage ǫ in distinguishing P from a random permutation, i.e. that for all PPT’s A s.t. Time A t , | Prob [ A P s (1 τ ) = 1] s ←{ 0 , 1 } τ Prob [ A R (1 τ ) = 1] R RNDPRM ( τ,m ) | ≤ ǫ Consider the following symmetric encryption scheme: The secret key is s ←{ 0 , 1 } τ . To encrypt a message M ∈{ 0 , 1 } m , the sender picks r ←{ 0 , 1 } m/ 2 , concatenates r and M , and computes the ciphertext as c = P s ([ r | M ]). 1.1 Show how to decrypt. 1.2 Consider the security of this scheme in the sense of indistinguishability. Bound the advan- tage ǫ that an adversary A running in time t has in distinguishing random ciphertexts of any two messages M 0 , M 1 ∈{ 0 , 1 } m . 1.3 Consider the security of this scheme against a chosen-message attack . In other words, consider an adversary A

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
