Modeling and Evaluating Security

Submitted by 21232f297a57a5a... on Wed, 05/02/2007 - 10:44am

Designing a secure cryptographic system that provides assurance about its claimed security requires a clear model and definition of security goals and possible attacks.. Once a system is designed, it must be evaluated against the model and be `shown’ to conform with the model.

Modeling and evaluating security in modern cryptographic systems takes three main approaches: information theoretic, computational and quantum theoretic.
