Key Derivation The sad fact is that developers think cryptographic keys are a kind of password. But users must be able to interact with cryptosystems. And so real cryptosystems will occasionally need to accept passphrases. Meanwhile, the single most widespread application of cryptography in modern software development is password storage.

Virtually every online application in the world deals with this problem, and most of them apply crypto badly. When C.

Both constructions have the advantage of incurring a very small time penalty from legitimate users while extracting an enormous penalty from attackers. Defense of user passwords is important enough to merit coverage in the book.

Every developer needs to know how. But the topic is even more important in the more complicated cryptosystems C. A real-world cryptosystem can get every other detail right and still manage to be merely as strong as a s Unix password file if its keys come from a poor KDF. Side Channels In computer security, a covert channel is a hidden signaling mechanism.

Attackers exploit covert channels to leak messages across security boundaries for instance in a pattern of specially-encoded DNS queries.

One of the first things every software developer learns how to do is comparing strings. Because the algorithm stops at the first mismatched character, it leaks timing information. Giving it an all-zeroes HMAC. Then send thousands of variants of the string and HMAC with the first byte randomized, and measuring each variant for the time it takes to get a response.

The variant that takes the longest on average is probably the correct first byte. Lather, rinse, repeat.

That honor belongs to protocol errors. The best example of a protocol error side channel is the padding oracle.

Ciphertexts are typically padded to block boundaries. Receivers check the padding after decryption and strip it off.

If the padding is invalid, the system coughs up an error, and with it the ability to decrypt messages without keys. The validity of the padding tips the attacker off about the plaintext value of a selected byte.

There are other error oracles besides the block padding oracle. Several affect RSA. Variants of the attack affect some stream cipher modes.

An error oracle coupled with known plaintext broke SIM card encryption. A book on safe crypto should give special coverage to error and exception handling.

Practical cryptography

Encryption is time-consuming; compressing a file before encryption speeds up the entire process. It turns out, no.

The length of the messages in a cryptosystem is also a potential side channel. If attackers control plaintext, they can submit inputs that can be correlated with message lengths to probe for the existence of string prefixes; longer messages tell the attacker their guess was wrong, while shorter messages indicate a redundancy that compression could exploit, betraying the presence of the prefix.

Attackers can decrypt whole messages this way. Want more examples? This paper has highly influenced 28 other papers. This paper has citations.

While CBC protects against many brute-force, deletion, and insertion attacks, a single bit error in the ciphertext yields an entire block error in the decrypted plaintext block and a bit error in the next decrypted plaintext block.

Elliptic Curve Elliptic curve cryptography ECC is similar in spirit to basic number-theoretic cryptography, but in a different, harder mathematical group.

One of the first things every software developer learns how to do is comparing strings. The loop that marks them as composite loops over 2i, 3i,. Stream ciphers come in several flavors but two are worth mentioning here Figure 2.

This is basically the proof that Euclid gave over years ago. NET and Java. Primarily used for privacy and confidentiality.
