Cryptanalysis of the Data Encryption Standard by the Method of Formal Coding

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 149)


The “Method of Formal Coding” consists in representing each bit of a DES ciphertext block as an XOR-sum-of-products of the plaintext bits and the key bits. Subsequent introduction of the “MFC-complexity measure” yields interesting results on the security of the DES and the influence of various parameters.
