(4.5 pages essay) How are computers used today in cryptanalysis


Question Description

Essay #1

Use a better title, more indicative of the topic of your paper.  How are computers used today in cryptanalysis, in breaking codes?  The essay should be from 3.5 to 4.5 pages, and the format is given in the class syllabus.

Number of references: at least five.

All papers should be in MLA format, hard copy, single sided, with all pages stapled together (no paper clips). Each essay should contain:

1. A separate title page.

2. Body of the text (the number of pages given in the assignment)

which should be double spaced, 12 point type, 1" margins.

3. Works Cited page, listing all works cited.

The title page should contain

1. The title (something more creative than "Essay #1").

The length of the body of the paper may vary, and will be given with the assignment, and will refer to the number of pages in the body of the text.

Information used in the paper should be documented, and references should be given inline (i.e. no footnotes) with items referred to listed on the Works Cited page at the end of the paper. A summary of the MLA format can be found at mlaformat.org.

Any movies or videos shown in class may be used as references (in proper MLA format), but may not be included in the count of references required by the assignment. Wikipedia references may not be used.

Cryptanalysis Methods and Cryptography Applications
Cryptanalysis is the process by which information systems are analyzed to reveal the
hidden elements of the system (Gaines, 12). In most cases, cryptanalysis was applied in the
decryption of encrypted messages thereby breaching the cryptographic systems. This agenda was
and is currently being successfully conducted despite the lack of a cryptographic key. It is
important to note that cryptanalysis includes the study of side channel attacks in addition to
cryptographic algorithms and mathematical analysis. Although the goal has remained unchanged
the methods of application to the process are continuously changing. This shift in cryptanalysis
can be attributed to the advancement in technology. In the olden days, pen and paper together
with the British Bombes machines were used in encrypting. The ability to convert information
from a clear state to incomprehensible gibberish was required during the World War II (Gaines,
40). It is during this time that the practice developed with the primary function being to prevent
third parties, adversaries, from being able to read the private information. Forms of modern
cryptography include information security, authentication, data confidentiality and data integrity.
This paper is a discussion of the way cryptanalysis has advanced to the point of integrating
computers into the system. It will also explore the ways in which computers are used in
Modern cryptography uses mathematical theory and computer science in the development
of algorithms that are indeed hard ...

I was on a very tight deadline but thanks to Studypool I was able to deliver my assignment on time.

The tutor was pretty knowledgeable, efficient and polite. Great service!

I did not know how to approach this question, Studypool helped me a lot.
