However, the linear structure can be exploited, since linear equations are easy to solve. The lesson here is that a cipher must have some nonlinear component. However, linear components are useful and, in fact, modern ciphers combine both linearit,y and nonlinearity. In Shannon’s terminology [ 1331, linearity provides an effective method to increase diffusion while nonlinearity is essential for confusion. 3 One-Time Pad I11 1917, Gilbert Vernam and Joseph Mauborgne invented a cipher system which would eventually become known as the one-time pad.

In addition, much effort was expended finding suitable cribs (known plaintext) since all of the practical attacks required known plaintext. Is there any relatively simple modification to the Enigma that would prevent the attack discussed in this section? We leave this as an exercise (Problem 13). It is important to note that our attack exploits the fact that the rotors can, in a sense, be isolated from the stecker. Any modifications designed to prevent this attack must take this fact into account.

The longer and more random a Vigenkre cipher keyword is, the more evenly the letters are distributed throughout the ciphertext. 03846. 03846 could be associated with a polyalphabetic cipher using a large keyword. 065. The question remains as to how to determine the length of the keyword of a Vigenkre cipher using the index of coincidence. The main weakness of the Vigenkre (or any similar periodic cipher) is that two identical characters occurring a distance apart that is a multiple of the key length will be encrypted identically.
