Unformatted text preview: ing is indeed random, this method encrypts M with a one-time pad and then encrypts both the pad and the encrypted message with each of the two algorithms. Since both are required to reconstruct M, a cryptanalyst must break both algorithms. The drawback is that the ciphertext is twice the size of the plaintext. This method can be extended to multiple algorithms, but the ciphertext expands with each additional algorithm. It’s a good idea, but I don’t think it’s very practical.

Previous Table of Contents Next ----------- Chapter 16 Pseudo-Random-Sequence Generators and Stream Ciphers 16.1 Linear Congruential Generators Linear congruential generators are pseudo-random-sequence generators of the form Xn = (aXn-1 + b) mod m in which Xn is the nth number of the sequence, and Xn-1 is the previous number of the sequence. The variables a, b, and m are constants: a is the multiplier, b is the increment, and m is the modulus. The key, or seed, is the value of X0. This generator has a period no greater than m. If a, b, and m are properly chosen, then the generator will be a maximal period generator (sometimes called maximal length) and have period of m. (For example, b should be relatively prime to m.) Details on choosing constants to ensure maximal period can be found in [863,942]. Another good article on linear congruential generators and their theory is [1446]. Table 16.1, taken from [1272], gives...

### 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.
