- a XOR a = 0; a XOR b XOR b = a; This makes the encryption and decryption with one key (b) possible. Let's take a look at the XOR-Encoding: Let's assume we have a 3 letter key. We take the first letter of the plaintext and XOR it with the first letter of the key. Next, we take the second letter and XOR it with the second letter of the key.
- • Start by copying key into first 4 words • Then loop creating word w[i] • Depend on values in immediate previous w[i-1] and 4 position back w[i-4] • in 3 of 4 cases just XOR these together • 1st word in 4 has rotate + S-box + XOR round constant on previous, before XOR 4th back 15

- Key and IV reuse Small IV space; no IV replay protection Known plaintext attack Can recover stream of length N for a given IV Then forge packets of length N in absence of keyed IC Partial known plaintext attack Can recover M bytes of keystream, M < N Repeated probing à extend keystream to N Weaknesses in RC4 key scheduling algorithm
- 3PARA RAT will use an 8-byte XOR key derived from the string HYF54&%9&jkMCXuiS if the DES decoding fails. 4H RAT : 4H RAT obfuscates C2 communication using a 1-byte XOR with the key 0xBE. ADVSTORESHELL : A variant of ADVSTORESHELL encrypts some C2 with 3DES. APT28 : APT28 installed a Delphi backdoor that used a custom algorithm for C2 ...
- XOR Implementation of Doubly Linked Lists • If (a XOR b) = c, then (c XOR b) = a. Can encode a two pointers a, b as c = (a XOR b). You can recover a and b: • a = c XOR b, • b = c XOR a • So, can store 2 pointers in one location. • Use single pointer ﬁeld to hold Prev XOR Next: A.key B B.key A xor C C.key B xor D D.key C xor E E.key ...
- Sep 25, 1997 · "Diferential cryptanalysis [1] and linear cryptanalysis [2] are powerful cryptanalytic attacks on private-key block ciphers. The complexity of differential cryptanalysis depends on the size of the largest entry in the XOR table, the total number of zeros in the XOR table, and the number of nonzero entries in the first column of that table [1], [3].
- Apr 07, 2015 · Ninja claims the software used only XOR (exclusive or) and a single-byte key to scramble the first 128 bytes of a .PNG test subject. It is trivial to decrypt data run through XOR with an 8-bit key. The app appears to generate this key from a passcode typed in by the user.
