Statistical and Algebraic Cryptanalysis of Lightweight and Ultra-Lightweight Symmetric Primitives

Pouyan Sepehrdad
This thesis is composed of two distinct parts: In the first part, we investigate the security of RC4 stream cipher against statistical attacks. We focus on its applications in WEP and WPA protocols.  ...  Abstract Symmetric cryptographic primitives such as block and stream ciphers are the building blocks in many cryptographic protocols.  ...  They also provide a better understanding of the RC4 stream cipher.  ...

Virtual Private Overlays: Secure Group Commounication in NAT-Constrained Environments [article]

David Isaac Wolinsky, Kyungyong Lee, Tae Woong Choi, P. Oscar Boykin,, Renato Figueiredo
2010 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper we propose a novel way of creating overlays that are both secure and private and a method to bootstrap them using a public overlay.  ...  Each group acts as a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) relying on the use of a centrally-managed web site providing an automated Certificate Authority (CA).  ...  Thus BitTorrent security uses a weak stream cipher, RC4, and lacks peer authentication as symmetric keys are exchanged through an unauthenticated Diffie-Hellman process.  ...
