A Critical Reassessment of Evolutionary Algorithms on the cryptanalysis of the simplified data encryption standard algorithm

8 Jul 2014 Fabien Teytaud Cyril Fonlupt

In this paper we analyze the cryptanalysis of the simplified data encryption standard algorithm using meta-heuristics and in particular genetic algorithms. The classic fitness function when using such an algorithm is to compare n-gram statistics of a the decrypted message with those of the target message... (read more)
