Review of Encryption :

3 Review of Encryption A message in its original form (plaintext) is encrypted into an unintelligible form (ciphertext) by a set of procedures known as an encryption algorithm (cipher) and a variable, called a key; and the ciphertext is transformed (decrypted) back into plaintext using the decryption algorithm and a key.

Review of Encryption :

4 Review of Encryption Encryption C = EK(P)
Decryption P = EK-1(C)
EK is chosen from a family of transformations known as a cryptographic system.
The parameter that selects the individual transformation is called the key K, selected from a keyspace K.
For a K-bit key size the keyspace size is 2K

Block Cipher Design Principles :

6 Block Cipher Design Principles Confusion – obscures the relationship between the plaintext and ciphertext. Eliminates redundancies and statistical patterns. Confusion is achieved through substitution.
Diffusion – dissipates the redundancies of the plaintext by distributing over the ciphertext. Diffusion is achieved through permutations.

DES - History :

7 DES - History The Data Encryption Standard (DES) was developed in the 1970s by the National Bureau of Standards (NBS)with the help of the National Security Agency (NSA).
Its purpose is to provide a standard method for protecting sensitive commercial and unclassified data.
IBM created the first draft of the algorithm, calling it LUCIFER with a 128-bit key.
DES officially became a federal standard in November of 1976.

DES - History :

8 DES - History In May 1973, and again in Aug 1974 the NBS (now NIST) called for possible encryption algorithms for use in unclassified government applications.
Response was mostly disappointing, however, IBM submitted their LUCIFER design.
Following a period of redesign and comment it became the Data Encryption Standard (DES).

DES - As a Federal Standard :

9 DES - As a Federal Standard DES was adopted as a (US) federal standard in November 1976, published by NBS as a hardware only scheme in January 1977 and by ANSI for both hardware and software standards in ANSI X3.92-1981 (also X3.106-1983 modes of use) .
Subsequently DES has been widely adopted and is now published in many standards around the world.

DES - Usage in Industry :

10 DES - Usage in Industry One of the largest users of the DES is the banking industry, particularly with EFT, and EFTPOS
It is for this use that the DES has primarily been standardized, with ANSI having twice reconfirmed its recommended use for 5 year periods - a further extension was not expected.
However DES has been extended to 2005 and at that time it will be replaced by AES which has already been standardized.

DES - Design Shrouded in Mystery :

11 DES - Design Shrouded in Mystery Although the standard is public, the design criteria used are classified and have yet to be released.
There has been considerable controversy over the design, particularly in the choice of a 56-bit key.
W. Diffie, M Hellman “Exhaustive Cryptanalysis of the NBS Data Encryption Standard” IEEE Computer 10(6), June 1977, pp74-84.
M. Hellman “DES will be totally insecure within ten years” IEEE Spectrum 16(7), Jul 1979, pp 31-41.

DES - Design Proves Good :

12 DES - Design Proves Good Recent analysis has shown despite this that the choice was appropriate, and that DES is well designed.
Rapid advances in computing speed though have rendered the 56 bit key susceptible to exhaustive key search, as predicted by Diffie and Hellman.
The DES has also been theoretically broken using a method called Differential Cryptanalysis, however in practice this is unlikely to be a problem (yet).

DES - Basics :

13 DES - Basics DES uses the two basic techniques of cryptography - confusion and diffusion.
At the simplest level, diffusion is achieved through numerous permutations and confusions is achieved through the XOR operation and the S-Boxes.
This is also called an S-P network.

DES - The 16 Iterations :

16 DES - The 16 Iterations The basic process in enciphering a 64-bit data block and a 56-bit key using the DES consists of:
An initial permutation (IP)
16 rounds of a complex key dependent calculation f
A final permutation, being the inverse of IP

Details of Each Iteration :

17 Details of Each Iteration

DES - Swapping of Left and Right Halves :

18 DES - Swapping of Left and Right Halves The 64-bit block being enciphered is broken into two halves.
The left half and the right half go through one DES round, and the result becomes the new right half.
The old right half becomes the new left half half, and will go through one round in the next round.
This goes on for 16 rounds, but after the last round the left and right halves are not swapped, so that the result of the 16th round becomes the final right half, and the result of the 15th round (which became the left half of the 16th round) is the final left half.

DES - Swapping of Left and Right Halves :

19 DES - Swapping of Left and Right Halves This can be described functionally as:
L(i) = R(i-1)
R(i) = L(i-1) P(S( E(R(i-1)) K(i) ))
This forms one round in an S-P network

DES - Basics :

20 DES - Basics Fundamentally DES performs only two operations on its input, bit shifting (permutation), and bit substitution.
The key controls exactly how this process works.
By doing these operations repeatedly and in a non-linear manner you end up with a result which can not be used to retrieve the original without the key.
Those familiar with chaos theory should see a great deal of similarity to what DES does. By applying relatively simple operations repeatedly a system can achieve a state of near total randomness.

Each Iteration Uses a Different Sub-key :

21 Each Iteration Uses a Different Sub-key DES works on 64 bits of data at a time. Each 64 bits of data is iterated on from 1 to 16 times (16 is the DES standard).
For each iteration a 48 bit subset of the 56 bit key is fed into the encryption block
Decryption is the inverse of the encryption process.

DES Key Processing :

22 DES Key Processing The key is usually stored as a 64-bit number, where every eighth bit is a parity bit.
The parity bits are pitched during the algorithm, and the 56-bit key is used to create 16 different 48-bit subkeys - one for each round.
DES Subkeys: K1, K2, K3, … K16

DES Key Processing - Subkeys Generation :

23 DES Key Processing - Subkeys Generation In order to generate the 16 48-bit subkeys from the 56-bit key, the following process is used:
First, the key is loaded according to the PC-1 and then halved.
Then each half is rotated by 2 bits in every round except the first, second, 9th and last rounds.
The reason for this is that it makes it secure against related-key cryptanalysis.
Then 48 of the 56 bits are chosen according to a compression permutation - PC-2.

The Key Schedule :

24 The Key Schedule The subkeys used by the 16 rounds are formed by the Key Schedule which consists of:
An initial permutation of the key (PC1) which selects 56-bits in two 28-bit halves
16 stages consisting of:
selecting 24-bits from each half and permuting them by PC2 for use in function f
rotating each half either 1 or 2 places depending on the key rotation schedule KRS
this can be described functionally as:
K(i) = PC2(KRS(PC1(K),i))

DES Operation - Plaintext :

28 DES Operation - Plaintext The block to be encrypted is halved - the right half goes through several steps before being XOR-ed with the left half and, except after the last round, trading places with the left half.

DES - Expansion Permutation :

29 DES - Expansion Permutation First the right half goes through an expansion permutation which expands it from 32 to 48 bits.
This makes it the same length as the subkey to allow the XOR, but it also demonstrates an important concept in cryptography. In expanding to 1.5 times its size, several bits are repeated (no new bits are introduced - all the existing bits are shifted around, and some are used twice).
Because of this some of the input bits affect two output bits instead of one, the goal being to have every output bit in DES depend upon every input bit as quickly as possible. This is known as the avalanche effect.

Expansion Permutation Table :

30 Expansion Permutation Table

DES Operation - E(Ri) Ki :

31 DES Operation - E(Ri) Ki The result of the expansion permutation is XOR-ed with the subkey, and then goes through the S-boxes.
There are 8 S-boxes, each of which takes a 6-bit input an spits out a 4-bit output.
This step is non-linear. For a given input i1, i2 ... i6, the output is determined by using the concatenation of i1 and i6, and the concatenation of i2… i5, and using these as the indices to the table which is the S-box.

S-box Permutations :

32 S-box Permutations The S-boxes are somewhat different from the other permutations. While all the others are set up according to “bit x goes to bit y”, the input bits can be viewed differently for the S-boxes.
If the input is {i1,i2,i3,i4,i5,i6} then the two-bit number {i1,i6} and the the four-bit number {i2,i3,i4,i5} are used as indices to the table.
For the 48-bit word {i1,i2 … i48}, the word {i1 … i6} is sent to S-box 1, the word {i7 … i12} to S-box 2, etc. The output of S-box 1, {o1 … o4}, that of S-box 2, {o5 … o8} etc. are concatenated to form the output.

36 The 8 DES S Boxes

DES Operation - P Box :

37 DES Operation - P Box The output of each of the 8 S-boxes is concatenated to form a 32-bit number, which is then permutated with a P-box.
This P-box is a straight permutation, and the resulting number is XOR-ed with the left half of the input block with which we started at the beginning of this round.
Finally, if this is not the last round, we swap the left and right halves and start again.

Permutation Function - P Box :

38 Permutation Function - P Box

DES Permutations :

39 DES Permutations The initial and final permutations in DES serve no cryptographic function. They were originally added in order to make it easier to load the 64-bit blocks into hardware - this algorithm after all predates 16-bit busses - and is now often omitted from implementations.
However the permutations are a part of the standard, and therefore any implementation not using the permutations is not truly DES.

DES Permutations :

40 DES Permutations Using the Initial Permutation a DES chip loads a 64-bit block one bit at a time (this gets to be very slow in software).
The order in which it loads the bits is shown below.
The final permutation is the inverse of the initial (for example, in the final permutation bit 40 goes to bit 1, whereas in the initial permutation bit 1 goes to bit 40).

44 Weak Keys There are a few keys which are considered weak for the DES algorithm. They are so few, however, that it is trivial to check for them during key generation. Example Weak Keys

DES Modes of Use :

54 DES Modes of Use DES encrypts 64-bit blocks of data, using a 56-bit key
We need some way of specifying how to use it in practice, given that we usually have an arbitrary amount of information to encrypt
The way we use a block cipher is called its Mode of Use and four have been defined for the DES by ANSI in the standard: ANSI X3.106-1983 Modes of Use)

DES Modes of Use :

55 DES Modes of Use DES Modes of Use are either:
Block Modes
Splits messages in blocks (ECB, CBC)
Stream Modes
On byte stream messages (CFB, OFB)

Block Modes - ECB :

56 Block Modes - ECB Electronic Codebook Book (ECB)
where the message is broken into independent 64-bit blocks which are encrypted
C(i) = DESK(P(i))

Subverting DES in ECB Mode :

57 Subverting DES in ECB Mode

Block Modes - CBC :

58 Block Modes - CBC Cipher Block Chaining (CBC)
Again the message is broken into 64-bit blocks, but they are linked together in the encryption operation with an IV
C(i) = DESK(P(i) C(i-1))
C(-1)= IV

Cipher Block Chaining (CBC) :

59 Cipher Block Chaining (CBC)

Stream Modes - CFB :

60 Stream Modes - CFB Cipher FeedBack (CFB)
where the message is treated as a stream of bytes, added to the output of the DES, with the result being feed back for the next stage
Ci = Pi SLMB(DESK(C(i-1)))
Ci = SLMB(DESK(C(i-1)))
C(-1)= IV
C(i) = Ci-1|| Ci-2|| Ci-3|| Ci-4|| Ci-5|| Ci-6|| Ci-7|| Ci-8||

Stream Modes - CFB :

61 Stream Modes - CFB C(10)

Stream Modes - OFB :

62 Stream Modes - OFB Output FeedBack (OFB)
where the message is treated as a stream of bytes, added to the message, but with the feedback being independent of the message
Ci = Pi Oi
Oi = SLMB(DESK(O(i-1)))
O(-1)= IV
O(i) = Oi-1|| Oi-2|| Oi-3|| Oi-4|| Oi-5|| Oi-6|| Oi-7|| Oi-8||

Stream Modes - OFB :

63 Stream Modes - OFB O(10)

Limitations of Various Modes - ECB :

64 Limitations of Various Modes - ECB Repetitions in message can be reflected in ciphertext, if aligned with message block.
Particularly with data such graphics.
Or with messages that change very little, which become a code-book analysis problem.
Weakness is because enciphered message blocks are independent of each other.
Can be solved using CBC.

Limitations of Various Modes - CBC :

65 Limitations of Various Modes - CBC Uses result of one encryption to modify input of next.
Hence each ciphertext block is dependent on all message blocks before it.
Thus a change in the message affects the ciphertext block after the change as well as the original block.
Susceptible to errors. Error in a single block make all the subsequent blocks useless.
