In the field of information security, Kerckhoffs’ Principle is like motherhood and apple pie, all rolled up into one.
a. Define Kerckhoffs’ Principle in the context of cryptography.
b. Give a real-world example where Kerckhoffs’ Principle has been violated. Did this cause any security problems?
c. Kerckhoffs’ Principle is sometimes applied more broadly than its strict cryptographic definition. Give a definition of Kerckhoffs’ Principle that applies more generally.
Suppose that we have a computer that can test 240 keys each second.
a. What is the expected time (in years) to find a key by exhaustive search if the keyspace is of size 288?
b. What is the expected time (in years) to find a key by exhaustive search if the keyspace is of size 2 112?
c. What is the expected time (in years) to find a key by exhaustive to find a key by exhaustive search if the keyspace is of size 2256?
