Cryptography Assignment 1 Given the following S-Boxes: S1= [ 15 10 2 5 8 4 11 12 1 0 14 7 9 3 6 13 ]; S2= [ 4 5 15 10 8 9 7 13 0 1 6 11 2 3 14 12 ]; Implement the following 16 bit cipher: Plain text: P = [a1 a2 a3 a4] where a1..a4 are 4 bit each Key: K = [k1 k2 k3 k4] where k1..k4 are 4 bit each Cipher text: C = E(p) = [ S1(a2⊕k1) S2(a4⊕k3) S1(a1⊕k2) S2(a3⊕k4) ] Example: P = [1000 1100 1101 0110], K = [0001 0011 0010 1111] C = [S1 (1101) S2 (0100) S1 (1011) S2 (0010] = [12 5 6 0] = [1100 0101 0110 0000] 1. Draw a chart which shows the relation between P, C, and K according to this cipher [5%]. 2. Implement the above mentioned cipher and calculate the cipher text for the plaintext provided in Appendix I. [30%] 3. Measure the avalanche effect for the encryption algorithm using the provided plain text. Change 1 bit in the input and calculate the % of how many bits are changed in the cipher text. Repeat this for the provided 10 plaintext inputs; this will give 10 x 16 rounds. Calculate the average avalanche effect. [50%] 4. Suggest a change to the encryption algorithm to enhance the avalanche effect. Repeat 3 and comment on your finding.
