After completing this video, the learner will understand how the Data Encryption Standard (DES) implements encryption and decryption as well as the flaws in this approach.
- [Voiceover] Modern symmetric algorithm's are much more…complex, than the simple substitution and…transposition ciphers of years past.…One of the most well known symmetric algorithm's is…the data encryption standard or D.E.S.…D.E.S is a historic encryption algorithm designed and…implemented by IBM in the 1970's.…With a purpose of serving as a standard encryption algorithm…for unclassified communication throughout…the federal government.…
Up until that point, different agencies used different…encryption algorithms, this caused issues with both…security because all of those algorithms weren't…thoroughly tested and interoperability, because…different agencies couldn't easily communicate with…each other in a secure manner.…Let's dig in to how D.E.S works, because it serve's as a…great example of the complexity of…modern cryptographic algorithms.…This picture shows the basic functioning of D.E.S.…
It takes 64-bit's of plain text as input in the top and…then runs it through an encryption operation known as the…feistel function.…
