Cryptographic figures of merit

Abstract

This paper endeavours to find a basis for the assignment of a figure of merit to cryptographic algorithms. Such a figure can then be used to evaluate the effectiveness of a particular algorithm. Figures of merit based upon theoretical information principles and complexity theory are first discussed. It is then shown how cydomatic complexity can be used in… (More)
