Cryptography & System Security - Dec 2014

Computer Engineering (Semester 7)

(1) Question 1 is compulsory.
(2) Attempt any three from the remaining questions.
(3) Assume data if required.
(4) Figures to the right indicate full marks.
1 (a) What is Multilateral Security?(5 marks) 1 (b) Compare Stream and Block encryption algorithms.(5 marks) 1 (c) Distinguish between attack, vulnerability and access control.(5 marks) 1 (d) What is Buffer overflow and incomplete mediation in Software Security?(5 marks) 2 The following questions are based on scenario in which encrypted data are passed between Alice and Bob using RSA algorithm. Alice's public key is {17, 23} and Bob's public key is {5,23}. Assume that no one knows the private keys but the original owners.
i) Encrypt the message M=7 using Bob's public key.
ii) What should Alice have to do to decrypt the message from Q-2 a?
iii) What would Bob have to do to decrypt the message from Q-2 a?
iv) What is Alice's private key?
v) What is Bob's private key?
(20 marks)
