  • Code book attack [r]: Attacking a block cipher by creating a code book, collecting plaintext/ciphertext pairs. [e]
  • Passive attack [r]: An attack on a communications system in which the attacker reads messages he is not supposed to but does not alter them. [e]
  • Active attack [r]: An attack on a communications system in which the attacker creates, alters, replaces, re-routes or blocks messages; this contrasts with a passive attack in which he only reads them. [e]
  • Block cipher [r]: A symmetric cipher that operates on fixed-size blocks of plaintext, giving a block of ciphertext for each [e]

  • Birthday coincidence [r]: In probability theory, the event that two persons in a group celebrate their birthday on the same day of the year; see birthday paradox. [e]
  • Birthday attack [r]: An attack on a cryptographic system that works by finding two identical outputs from the system. [e]
  • Cryptographic hash [r]: Add brief definition or description
  • Cipher [r]: A means of combining plaintext (of letters or numbers, or bits), using an algorithm that mathematically manipulates the individual elements of plaintext, into ciphertext, a form unintelligible to any recipient that does not know both the algorithm and a randomizing factor called a cryptographic key [e]
