DES Encryption Operation Modes

This chapter provides tutorial examples and notes about DES encryption operation modes. Topics include how different blocks of plaintext can be coupled together to improve the strength of the DES encryption algorithm; ECB (Electronic CodeBook), CBC (Cipher Block Chaining), CFB (Cipher FeedBack), and OFB (Output FeedBack) Operation Modes.

DES Encryption Operation Mode Introduction

What is ECB (Electronic CodeBook) Operation Mode?

What is CBC (Cipher Block Chaining) Operation Mode?

What is CFB (Cipher FeedBack) Operation Mode?

What is OFB (Output FeedBack) Operation Mode?

Conclusion

- DES operation modes are ways to couple previous plaintext blocks with the current plaintext block to improve the strength of the encryption.
- Initial vector is used to parameterize the operation modes.
- Sun JCE implementation of DES operation modes work as expected.
