All-or-Nothing Encryption and the Package Transform


We present a new mode of encryption for block ciphers, which we call al l -or -noth ing encrypt ion . This mode has the interesting defining property that one must decrypt the entire ciphertext before one can determine even one message block. This means that brute-force searches against all-or-nothing encryption are slowed down by a factor equal to the… (More)
