The figures in the right hand margin indicate marks. Answer all parts of a question at a place. Q1. a) b) c) d) e) f) g) h) i) j) Q2. a) b) Q3. a) b) Answer the following questions : Short answer type : Define the three security goals. Find all multiplicative inverses in Z10. Define linear congruence. Use the additive cipher with key = 15 to decrypt the message “WTAAD”. Are all stream ciphers monoalphabetic? Justify your answer. Briefly describes MixColumns. What is a one-way function? Is it necessary to recover the secret key in order to attack a MAC algorithm? Define virus. Specify the different types of viruses. List the design goals of firewalls. (2 x 10) In each of the following ciphers, what is the maximum number of characters that will be changed in the ciphertext if only a single character is changed in the plaintext? (i) Additive (ii) Multiplicative (iii) Affine (iv) Rotor (v) Enigma. Use the Vigenere cipher with keyword “HEALTH” to encipher the message “Life is full of surprises”. (5) Find the result of (x5 + x2 + x) ʘ (x7 + x4 + x3 + x2 + x) in GF(28) with irreducible polynomial (x8 + x4 + x3 + x + 1). Note that symbol ʘ is used to show the multiplication of two polynomials.
