One Bad Apple: Backwards Compatibility Attacks on State-of-the-Art Cryptography

Abstract

Backwards compatibility attacks are based on the common practical scenario that a cryptographic standard offers a choice between several algorithms to perform the same cryptographic task. This often includes secure stateof-the-art cryptosystems, as well as insecure legacy cryptosystems with known vulnerabilities that are made available for backwards… (More)
