Previous Table of Contents Next ----------- 20.7 Cellular Automata A new and novel idea, studied by Papua Guam [665], is the use of cellular automata in public-key cryptosystems. This system is still far too new and has not been studied extensively, but a preliminary examination suggests that it may have a cryptographic weakness similar to one seen in other cases [562]. Still, this is a promising area of research. Cellular automata have the property that, even if they are invertible, it is impossible to calculate the predecessor of an arbitrary state by reversing the rule for finding the successor. This sounds a whole lot like a trapdoor one-way function. 20.8 Other Public-Key Algorithms Many other public-key algorithms have been proposed and broken over the years. The Matsumoto-Imai algorithm [1021] was broken in [450]. The Cade algorithm was first proposed in 1985, broken in 1986 [774], and then strengthened in the same year [286]. In addition to these attacks, there are general attacks for decomposing polynomials over finite fields [605]. Any algorithm that gets its security from the composition of polynomials over a finite field should be looked upon with skepticism, if not outright suspicion. The Yagisawa algorithm combines exponentiation mod p with arithmetic mod p – 1 [1623]; it was broken in [256]. Another public-key algorithm, Tsujii-Kurosawa-Itoh-Fujioka-Matsumoto [1548] is insecure [94...

    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.
