If you are benchmarking then you may want to visit Benchmarks Sample Program. It shows you how to use StreamTransformation and its ProcessString method to process multiple blocks at a time. A typical output is shown below. Note that each run will produce different results because the key and initialization vector are randomly generated. When using a StreamTransformationFilter , the filter will pad the plain text as required. This means 13 bytes of input will receive 3 bytes of padding for a bit block cipher.
This also means 16 bytes of input will receive 16 bytes of PKCS padding, resulting in 32 bytes of cipher text. For the latter case, padding can be removed as follows. To manually insert bytes into the filter, perform multiple Put s. Though Get is used below, a StringSink could easily be attached and save the administrivia. GenerateBlock key, key.

How the Bank of Canada rate hike could impact house prices 2 days ago. More from CBC. CBC has been the most commonly used mode of operation. Its main drawbacks are that encryption is sequential i. One way to handle this last issue is through the method known as ciphertext stealing.
Note that a one-bit change in a plaintext or initialization vector IV affects all following ciphertext blocks. Decrypting with the incorrect IV causes the first block of plaintext to be corrupt but subsequent plaintext blocks will be correct. This is because each block is XORed with the ciphertext of the previous block, not the plaintext, so one does not need to decrypt the previous block before using it as the IV for the decryption of the current one. This means that a plaintext block can be recovered from two adjacent blocks of ciphertext.
As a consequence, decryption can be parallelized. Note that a one-bit change to the ciphertext causes complete corruption of the corresponding block of plaintext, and inverts the corresponding bit in the following block of plaintext, but the rest of the blocks remain intact. Explicit initialization vectors  takes advantage of this property by prepending a single random block to the plaintext.
Encryption is done as normal, except the IV does not need to be communicated to the decryption routine. Whatever IV decryption uses, only the random block is "corrupted". It can be safely discarded and the rest of the decryption is the original plaintext. The propagating cipher block chaining  or plaintext cipher-block chaining  mode was designed to cause small changes in the ciphertext to propagate indefinitely when decrypting, as well as when encrypting.
In PCBC mode, each block of plaintext is XORed with both the previous plaintext block and the previous ciphertext block before being encrypted. Like with CBC mode, an initialization vector is used in the first block. On a message encrypted in PCBC mode, if two adjacent ciphertext blocks are exchanged, this does not affect the decryption of subsequent blocks. The cipher feedback CFB mode, in its simplest form uses the entire output of the block cipher.
In this variation, it is very similar to CBC, makes a block cipher into a self-synchronizing stream cipher. In the specification of the CFB mode below, each plaintext segment Pj and ciphertext segment Cj consists of s bits. The value of s is sometimes incorporated into the name of the mode, e. For other values of s in the CFB mode, and for the other confidentiality modes in this recommendation, the synchronization must be restored externally.
CFB may also self synchronize in some special cases other than those specified. For example, a one bit change in CFB with an underlying bit block cipher, will re-synchronize after two blocks. However, CFB etc. Like CBC mode, changes in the plaintext propagate forever in the ciphertext, and encryption cannot be parallelized. Also like CBC, decryption can be parallelized.
CFB, OFB and CTR share two advantages over CBC mode: the block cipher is only ever used in the encrypting direction, and the message does not need to be padded to a multiple of the cipher block size though ciphertext stealing can also be used for CBC mode to make padding unnecessary. The output feedback OFB mode makes a block cipher into a synchronous stream cipher.
It generates keystream blocks, which are then XORed with the plaintext blocks to get the ciphertext. Just as with other stream ciphers, flipping a bit in the ciphertext produces a flipped bit in the plaintext at the same location. This property allows many error-correcting codes to function normally even when applied before encryption. Each output feedback block cipher operation depends on all previous ones, and so cannot be performed in parallel. However, because the plaintext or ciphertext is only used for the final XOR, the block cipher operations may be performed in advance, allowing the final step to be performed in parallel once the plaintext or ciphertext is available.
Using OFB mode with a partial block as feedback like CFB mode reduces the average cycle length by a factor of 2 32 or more. A mathematical model proposed by Davies and Parkin and substantiated by experimental results showed that only with full feedback an average cycle length near to the obtainable maximum can be achieved. For this reason, support for truncated feedback was removed from the specification of OFB.
Like OFB, counter mode turns a block cipher into a stream cipher. It generates the next keystream block by encrypting successive values of a "counter". The counter can be any function which produces a sequence which is guaranteed not to repeat for a long time, although an actual increment-by-one counter is the simplest and most popular. The usage of a simple deterministic input function used to be controversial; critics argued that "deliberately exposing a cryptosystem to a known systematic input represents an unnecessary risk".
CTR mode has similar characteristics to OFB, but also allows a random-access property during decryption. CTR mode is well suited to operate on a multi-processor machine, where blocks can be encrypted in parallel. Furthermore, it does not suffer from the short-cycle problem that can affect OFB.
In case of a non-random nonce such as a packet counter , the nonce and counter should be concatenated e. Simply adding or XORing the nonce and counter into a single value would break the security under a chosen-plaintext attack in many cases, since the attacker may be able to manipulate the entire IV—counter pair to cause a collision. Once an attacker controls the IV—counter pair and plaintext, XOR of the ciphertext with the known plaintext would yield a value that, when XORed with the ciphertext of the other block sharing the same IV—counter pair, would decrypt that block.
Note that the nonce in this diagram is equivalent to the initialization vector IV in the other diagrams. For modern authenticated encryption AEAD or protocols with message authentication codes chained in MAC-Then-Encrypt order, any bit error should completely abort decryption and must not generate any specific bit errors to decryptor.
As such error propagation is less important subject in modern cipher modes than in traditional confidentiality-only modes. It might be observed, for example, that a one-block error in the transmitted ciphertext would result in a one-block error in the reconstructed plaintext for ECB mode encryption, while in CBC mode such an error would affect two blocks.
Some felt that such resilience was desirable in the face of random errors e. However, when proper integrity protection is used, such an error will result with high probability in the entire message being rejected. If resistance to random error is desirable, error-correcting codes should be applied to the ciphertext before transmission. Many more modes of operation for block ciphers have been suggested.
Some have been accepted, fully described even standardized , and are in use. Others have been found insecure, and should never be used. Still others don't categorize as confidentiality, authenticity, or authenticated encryption — for example key feedback mode and Davies—Meyer hashing. Disk encryption often uses special purpose modes specifically designed for the application.
Many modes use an initialization vector IV which, depending on the mode, may have requirements such as being only used once a nonce or being unpredictable ahead of its publication, etc. Block ciphers can also be used in other cryptographic protocols. They are generally used in modes of operation similar to the block modes described here.
As with all protocols, to be cryptographically secure, care must be taken to design these modes of operation correctly. There are several schemes which use a block cipher to build a cryptographic hash function. See one-way compression function for descriptions of several such methods.
Message authentication codes MACs are often built from block ciphers. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Cryptography algorithm. For "method of operation", see Modus operandi.

The third image is how the image might appear encrypted with CBC, CTR or any of the other more secure modes—indistinguishable from random noise.
Note that the random appearance of the third image does not ensure that the image has been securely encrypted; many kinds of insecure encryption have been developed which would produce output just as "random-looking".

What follows is a list of classic modes of operation: they all provide confidentiality but not data integrity unlike modern AEAD modes, which are described in another section. Electronic CodeBook. The most basic but also the weakest mode of operation. Each block of plaintext is encrypted independently of any other block.
The ECB mode should not be used because it is semantically insecure. For one, it exposes correlation between blocks. The new function at the module level under Crypto. Cipher instantiates a new ECB cipher object for the relevant base algorithm. The method encrypt and likewise decrypt of an ECB cipher object expects data to have length multiple of the block size e. You might need to use Crypto.
Padding to align the plaintext to the right boundary. It is a mode of operation where each plaintext block gets XOR-ed with the previous ciphertext block prior to encryption. Cipher instantiates a new CBC cipher object for the relevant base algorithm. The method encrypt and likewise decrypt of a CBC cipher object expects data to have length multiple of the block size e. This mode turns the block cipher into a stream cipher. Each byte of plaintext is XOR-ed with a byte taken from a keystream : the result is the ciphertext.
The keystream is generated by encrypting a sequence of counter blocks with ECB. A counter block is exactly as long as the cipher block size e. It consists of the concatenation of two pieces:. Cipher instantiates a new CTR cipher object for the relevant base algorithm.
The methods encrypt and decrypt of a CTR cipher object accept data of any length i. Both raise an OverflowError exception as soon as the counter wraps around to repeat the original value. The CTR cipher object has a read-only attribute nonce bytes. It is a mode of operation which turns the block cipher into a stream cipher. The keystream is obtained on a per-segment basis: the plaintext is broken up in segments from 1 byte up to the size of a block.
Then, for each segment, the keystream is obtained by encrypting with the block cipher the last piece of ciphertext produced so far - possibly backfilled with the Initialization Vector , if not enough ciphertext is available yet. Cipher instantiates a new CFB cipher object for the relevant base algorithm. The methods encrypt and decrypt of a CFB cipher object accept data of any length i. It is another mode that leads to a stream cipher.
The keystream is obtained by recursively encrypting the Initialization Vector. Cipher instantiates a new OFB cipher object for the relevant base algorithm. The methods encrypt and decrypt of an OFB cipher object accept data of any length i. Permalink master. Branches Tags. Could not load branches.

In CBC mode, each block of plaintext is XORed with the previous ciphertext block before being encrypted. This way, each ciphertext block depends on all. In cryptography, a cipher block chaining message authentication code (CBC-MAC) is a technique for constructing a message authentication code from a block. CBC Mode is cipher block chaining. CBC mode was originally specified by NIST in FIPS The standard, issued in , only offers.
