  • Cryptanalysis [r]: The sub-field of cryptology which deals with breaking into existing codes and ciphers. [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]


These are subtopics only with respect to their cryptanalysis.

  • Block cipher [r]: A symmetric cipher that operates on fixed-size blocks of plaintext, giving a block of ciphertext for each [e]
  • Stream cipher [r]: A cipher that encrypts data by mixing it with the output of a pseudorandom number generator controlled by a key; to decrypt, run the same generator with the same key to get the same pseudorandom data, then reverse the mixing step. [e]
  • Internet key exchange [r]: Add brief definition or description
