We present an attack on the SEAL Pseudorandom Function Family that is able to efficiently distinguish it from a truly random function with 2 43 bytes output. While this is not a practical attack on any use of SEAL, it does demonstrate that SEAL does not achieve its design goals. Description of SEAL and Other Work SEAL is a length increasing pseudorandom function family that, under the control of a 160-bit key, expands a 32-bit string into a 2 19 -bit string. Internally, M.
