(60 points) In the following questions, \(\{ p_k \}\) denotes a pseudorandom permutation collection where for every \(k\in{\{0,1\}}^n\), \(p_k\) is a permutation on \(n\) bits. For each one of the following schemes for encrypting \(2n\) bits, say whether it is

*necessarily*CPA secure,*necessarily*not CPA secure, or the answer depends on the particular choice of \(\{ p_k \}\). Prove your assertions.(ECB Mode, 15 points): \(E(m_1,m_2)= p_k(m_1)\|p_k(m_2)\) (as usual \(\|\) denotes concatenation

^{1})(CTR Mode, 15 points): \(E(m_1,m_2) = IV\|y_1\|y_2\) where \(IV\) is chosen at random in \({\{0,1\}}^n\), and \(y_i=p_k(IV+i) \oplus m_i\) where addition is done modulo \(2^n\).

(CTR’ Mode, 15 points): \(E(m_1,m_2) = IV\|y_1\|y_2\) where \(IV\) is chosen at random in \({\{0,1\}}^n\), and \(y_i = p_k(IV+i+m_i)\) where addition is done modulo \(2^n\).

(CBC Mode with random \(IV\), 15 points): \(E(m_1,m_2)=IV\|y_1\|y_2\) where \(IV\) is chosen at random in \({\{0,1\}}^n\), \(y_1 = p_k(m_1 \oplus IV)\) and \(y_2 = p_k(m_2 \oplus y_1)\).

For each one of the following schemes \((E',D')\) for encrypting an \(n\) bit message \(m\), say whether it is

*necessarily*CCA secure,*necessarily*not CCA secure, or the answer depends on the particular choice of the primitives. Prove your assertions.(10 points) \(E'_{k_1,k_2}(m) = E_{k_1}(m\|S_{k_2}(m))\). \(D'_{k_1,k_2}(c)\) is obtained by letting \(m\|\sigma=D_{k_1}(c)\) and outputting \(m\) if \(V(m,\sigma)=1\) and

(25 points) Prove the security of the simplified GCM mode described in the lecture notes for two blocks. That is, let \(H\) be a collection of functions from \({\{0,1\}}^{3n}\) to \({\{0,1\}}^n\) such that for every \(x\neq x'\in{\{0,1\}}^{3n}\) and \(y,y'\in{\{0,1\}}^n\), \(\Pr_{h{\leftarrow_R\;}H}[ h(x)=y \wedge h(x')=y' ]=2^{-2n}\). Let \(\{ p_k \}\) be a pseudorandom permutation collection on \(n\) bits. Prove that the following encryption on \(2n\) bits is CCA secure:

\(E_{k,h}(m_1,m_2) = (IV,y_1,y_2,y_3)\) where \(IV\) is chosen at random in \([2^n]\), \(y_1=p_k(IV+1)\oplus m_1\), \(y_2=p_k(IV+2) \oplus m_2\) and \(y_3=p_k(IV+3)\oplus h(IV\|y_1\|y_2)\). (Addition is done modulo \(2^n\) as usual.)

\(D_{k,h}(IV\|y_1\|y_2\|y_3)\) is obtained by outputting ```error’’’ if \(m_3 \neq h(IV\|y_1\|y_2)\oplus p_k(IV+3)\) and otherwise outputting \((m_1,m_2)\).

Throughout this homework assignment we’ll assume that if the lengths of the different parts are not known then we use some encoding to mark the point of concatenation so it’s possible to parse the different parts.↩
