  • This paper analyzes the use of machine learning techniques for the identification of encryption algorithms, from ciphertexts only. The experiment involved corpora of plain texts in seven different languages; seven encryption algorithms, each one in ECB and CBC modes; and six data mining algorithms for classification. The plain text files were encrypted with each cryptographic algorithm under both cipher modes. After that, the ciphertexts were processed to produce metadata, which were then used… CONTINUE READING
