Cryptanalysis of a Fast Encryption Scheme for Databases and of Its Variant

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Protecting the confidentiality in large databases without degrading their performance is a challenging problem, especially when encryption and decryption must be performed at the database-level or at the application-level. The authors here focus on symmetric ciphers for database encryption since they are the only type of ciphers with acceptable performance for most applications. The authors point out that stream ciphers are the adequate type of encryption schemes.
