An Introduction to Mathematical Cryptography by Jeffrey Hoffstein, Jill Pipher, Joseph H. Silverman

By Jeffrey Hoffstein, Jill Pipher, Joseph H. Silverman

An advent to Mathematical Cryptography offers an creation to public key cryptography and underlying arithmetic that's required for the topic. all the 8 chapters expands on a selected zone of mathematical cryptography and gives an intensive record of exercises.

It is an acceptable textual content for complex scholars in natural and utilized arithmetic and desktop technology, or the booklet can be used as a self-study. This publication additionally offers a self-contained therapy of mathematical cryptography for the reader with restricted mathematical background.

Assuming that Eve is able to distinguish between valid and invalid plaintexts, eventually she will recover the message. This attack is known as an exhaustive search attack (also sometimes referred to as a brute-force attack ), since Eve exhaustively searches through the key space. With current technology, an exhaustive search is considered to be infeasible if the space has at least 280 elements. Thus Bob and Alice should definitely choose Bk ≥ 80. For many cryptosystems, especially the public key cryptosystems that form the core of this book, there are refinements on the exhaustive search attack that effectively replace the size of the space with its square root.

We conclude this section with a brief discussion of another property that is quite important both theoretically and practically. 31 (Primitive Root Theorem). Let p be a prime number. , F∗p = {1, g, g 2 , g 3 , . . , g p−2 }. Elements with this property are called primitive roots of Fp or generators of F∗p . They are the elements of F∗p having order p − 1. Proof. See [126, Chapter 20] or one of the texts [33, 47, 53, 90, 101]. 32. The field F11 has 2 as a primitive root, since in F11 , 20 = 1 21 = 2 22 = 4 23 = 8 24 = 5 25 = 10 26 = 9 27 = 7 28 = 3 29 = 6.

6. Of course, this cannot be true for all values of a, since if a is a multiple of 7, then so are all of its powers, so in that case an ≡ 0 (mod 7). On the other hand, if a is not divisible by 7, then a is congruent to one of the values 1, 2, 3, . . , 6 modulo 7. Hence a6 ≡ 1 0 (mod 7) (mod 7) if 7 a, if 7 | a. Further experiments with other primes suggest that this example reflects a general fact. 25 (Fermat’s Little Theorem). Let p be a prime number and let a be any integer. Then ap−1 ≡ 1 0 (mod p) (mod p) if p a, if p | a.
