This letter analyzes the security weakness of a recently proposed communication method based on chaotic modulation and masking using synchronization of two chaotic systems with different orders. It is shown that its application to secure communication is unsafe, because it can be broken in two different ways, by high-pass filtering and by reduced order… (More)
—Staggering computational and algorithmic advances in recent years now make possible systematic Quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) simulations of high temperature (high-Tc) su-perconductivity in a microscopic model, the two dimensional (2D) Hubbard model, with parameters relevant to the cuprate materials. Here we report the algorithmic and computational advances… (More)
This paper reports a detailed cryptanalysis of a recently proposed encryption scheme based on the logistic map [A. Pisarchik et al., Chaos 16, 033118 (2006)]. Some problems are emphasized concerning the key space definition and the implementation of the cryptosystem using floating-point operations. It is also shown how it is possible to reduce considerably… (More)
Recently two encryption schemes were proposed by combining circular bit shift and XOR operations, under the control of a pseudorandom bit sequence (PRBS) generated from a chaotic system. This paper studies the security of these two encryption schemes and reports the following findings: 1) there exist some security defects in both schemes; 2) the underlying… (More)
— This paper analyzes the use of the logistic map for cryptographic applications. The most important characteristics of the logistic map are shown in order to prove the inconvenience of considering this map in the design of new chaotic cryptosystems.
In recent years, a growing number of cryptosystems based on chaos have been proposed , many of them fundamentally flawed by a lack of robustness and security. This paper describes the security weaknesses of a recently proposed cryptographic algorithm with chaos at the physical level. It is shown that the security is trivially compromised for practical… (More)
This paper studies the security of a secure communication scheme based on two discrete-time intermittently chaotic systems synchronized via a common random driving signal. Some security defects of the scheme are revealed: 1) The key space can be remarkably reduced; 2) the decryption is insensitive to the mismatch of the secret key; 3) the key-generation… (More)
This paper analyzes the security of a recent cryptosystem based on the ergodicity property of chaotic maps. It is shown how to obtain the secret key using a chosen-ciphertext attack. Some other design weaknesses are also shown.
