problem5) Assume there are 256 possible keys in the universe of keys for a particular cipher. How many keys on average would need to be tried to break the cipher?

problem6) A message is sent using a Message Authentication Code (MAC). An attacker intercepts the message, changes the message and sends it to the original recipient. The recipient of the message will not detect the change.

• True
• False

problem7) A block encryption algorithm encrypts fixed size blocks.

• True
• False

problem8) The number of passwords that can be generated from the set of characters {a,b,c,d} without replacement is? (without replacement means you can use each character once and only once)

2) 64
3) 128
4) 256
5) 512

problem9) A digital certificate is issued with a digital signature from a certificate authority. The digital certificate binds together a public key with an identity.

• True
• False

problem10) The difference between the DES and 3DES algorithms is?

1) DES is symmetric encryption. 3DES is asymmetric encryption.
2) DES uses 16 subkeys for encryption and decryption, 3DES uses 3.
3) DES uses 1 key for encryption and decryption; 3DES uses 3 keys.
4) 3DES uses a Feistel network, DES does not.
5) None of the answers are correct.
