The origins of linear cryptanalysis can be traced back to a number
of seminal works of the early 1990s. Since its invention, several
theoretical and practical aspects of the technique have been
studied, understood and generalized, resulting in more elaborated
attacks against certain ciphers, but also in some negative results
regarding the potential of various attempts at generalization. This
book gives an overview of the current state of the discipline and
it takes a look at potential future developments, and is divided
into five parts. The first part deals with basic assumptions in
linear cryptanalysis and their consequences for the design of
modern block ciphers; part two explores a theory of
multi-dimensional linear attacks on block ciphers; and, the third
part covers how linear attacks can be applied to stream ciphers and
gives an overview of the development of linear attacks as well as a
theoretical explanation of their current use. Part four details
interesting and useful links between linear cryptanalysis and
coding theory and the fifth and final part discusses how
correlation analysis can be conducted at the level of elements of
GF (2n) without the need to deal with field representation issues.
This book will be of interest to anybody who wishes to explore this
fascinating yet complex part of symmetrical cryptanalysis.
