Unformatted text preview: of the input have to be reversed and the bits of the output have to be reversed. Code to implement 3-Way can be found in the back of this book. So far, there has been no successful cryptanalysis of 3-Way. The algorithm is unpatented. 14.6 Crab
This algorithm was developed by Burt Kaliski and Matt Robshaw of RSA Laboratories . The idea behind Crab is to use techniques from one-way hash functions to make a fast encryption algorithm. Hence, Crab is very similar to MD5, and this section assumes you are familiar with Section 18.5. Crab has a very large block: 1024 bytes. Since Crab is presented more as a research contribution than a real algorithm, no definitive key-generation routines are presented. The authors suggest a method that could turn an 80-bit key into three requisite subkeys, although the algorithm could easily accept variable-length keys. Crab uses two sets of large subkeys: A permutation of the numbers 0 through 255: P0, P1, P2,..., P255. A 2048-entry array of 32-bit numbers: S0, S1, S2,..., S2047.

----------- These subkeys must all be calculated before encryption or decryption. To encrypt a 1024-byte block X: (1) Divide X into 256 32-bit sub-blocks: X0, X1, X2,..., X255. (2) Permute the sub-blocks of X according to P. (3) For r = 0 to 3...
