Review Questions 2.4  What is the difference between a block  cipher and a stream cipher?  Solution: stream cipher  is one that encrypts a  digital data stream one bit or one byte at a  time. block cipher  is one in which a block of  plaintext is treated as a whole and used to  produce a ciphertext block of equal length. Dr. E. Iscioglu                                                 Cryptography and Network Security 4

Review Questions 2.5  What is the difference between an unconditionally  secure cipher and a computationally secure cipher?  Solution: An encryption scheme is  unconditionally secure  if  the ciphertext generated by the scheme does not  contain enough information to determine uniquely the  corresponding plaintext, no matter how much  ciphertext is available.  An encryption scheme is said to be  computationally  secure  if: (1) the cost of breaking the cipher exceeds  the value of the encrypted information, and (2) the  time required to break the cipher exceeds the useful  lifetime of the information. Dr. E. Iscioglu                                                 Cryptography and Network Security 6
