Consider a Feistel cipher with four rounds. Then the plaintext is denoted as P = (Lo, -Ro) and the corresponding ciphertext is C = (L4, R4). What is the ciphertext C, in terms of Lo, RQ, and the subkey, for each of the following round functions?
a. F(RÌ-I,KÌ) = 0
b. F(Ri-1,Ki) = Ri-1
c. F(Ri-1,Ki) = Ki
d. F(Ri-1,Ki) = Ri-1®Ki
1 This problem deals with a Feistel Cipher.
a. Give the definition of a Feistel Cipher.
b. Is DES a Feistel Cipher?
c. Is AES a Feistel Cipher?
d. Why is the Tiny Encryption Algorithm, TEA, “almost” a Feistel Cipher?
2 Within a single round, DES employs both confusion and diffusion.
a. Give one source of confusion within a DES round.
b. Give one source of diffusion within a DES round.
