We present an efficient endomorphism for the Jacobian of a curve C of genus 2 for divisors having a Non disjoint support. This extends the work of Costello and Lauter in  who calculated explicit formulæ for divisor doubling and addition of divisors with disjoint support in JF(C) using only base field operations. Explicit formulæ is presented for this third case and a different approach for divisor doubling.
The main aim of this paper is to present the concept of fault-injection backdoors in Random Number Generators. Backdoors can be activated by fault-injection techniques. Presented algorithms can be used in embedded systems like smart-cards and hardware security modules in order to implement subliminal channels in random number generators.

The methods for secure outsourcing and secure one-time programs have recently been of great research interest. Garbling schemes are regarded as a promising technique for these applications while Bellare, Hoang and Rogaway introduced the first formal security notions for garbling schemes in [3, 4]. Ever since, even more security notions have been introduced and garbling schemes have been categorized in different security classes according to these notions. In this paper, we introduce new security classes of garbling schemes and build a hierarchy for the security classes including the known classes as well as classes introduced in this paper.
In this paper we introduce a novel block cipher based on the composition of abstract finite automata and Latin cubes. For information encryption and decryption the apparatus uses the same secret keys, which consist of key-automata based on composition of abstract finite automata such that the transition matrices of the component automata form Latin cubes. The aim of the paper is to show the essence of our algorithms not only for specialists working in compositions of abstract automata but also for all researchers interested in cryptosystems. Therefore, automata theoretical background of our results is not emphasized. The introduced cryptosystem is important also from a theoretical point of view, because it is the first fully functioning block cipher based on automata network.

Differential Cryptanalysis (DC) is one of the oldest known attacks on block ciphers. DC is based on tracking of changes in the differences between two messages as they pass through the consecutive rounds of encryption. However DC remains very poorly understood. In his textbook written in the late 1990s Schneier wrote that against differential cryptanalysis, GOST is “probably stronger than DES”. In fact Knudsen have soon proposed more powerful advanced differential attacks however the potential space of such attacks is truly immense. To this day there is no method which allows to evaluate the security of a cipher against such attacks in a systematic way. Instead, attacks are designed and improved in ad-hoc ways with heuristics [6–13,21]. The best differential attack known has time complexity of 2179 .
In this paper we show that for a given block cipher there exists an optimal size for advanced differential properties. This new understanding allows to considerably reduce the space to be searched for “good” truncated differential properties suitable for an attack.
This paper deals with the phase-shift fault analysis of cipher Trivium. So far, only bit-flipping technique has been presented in the literature. The best fault attack on Trivium  combines bit-flipping with algebraic cryptanalysis and needs to induce 2 one-bit faults and to generate 420 bits per each keystream. Our attack combines phase-shifting and algebraic cryptanalysis and needs to phase-shift 2 registers of the cipher and to generate 120 bits per each keystream.
In this paper we propose a decentralized privacy-preserving system which is able to share sensible data in a way, that only predefined subsets of authorized entities can recover the data after getting an additional alarm message. The protocol uses two main communication channels: a P2P network where the encrypted information is stored, and a smaller private P2P network, which consists of the authorized parties called friend-to-friend network. We describe the communication protocol fulfilling the desired security requirements. The proposed protocol achieves unconditional security. The main cryptographic building blocks of the protocol are symmetric encryption schemes and secret sharing schemes.

We present an algorithm to compute the primary decomposition of a submodule N of the free module ℤ[x1,...,xn]m. For this purpose we use algorithms for primary decomposition of ideals in the polynomial ring over the integers. The idea is to compute first the minimal associated primes of N, i.e. the minimal associated primes of the ideal Ann (ℤ[x1,...,xn]m/N) in ℤ[x1,...,xn] and then compute the primary components using pseudo-primary decomposition and extraction, following the ideas of Shimoyama-Yokoyama. The algorithms are implemented in Singular.
Let A1,...,AN and B1,...,BM be two sequences of events and let νN(A) and νM(B) be the number of those Ai and Bj, respectively, that occur. Based on multivariate Lagrange interpolation, we give a method that yields linear bounds in terms of Sk,t, k+t ≤ m on the distribution of the vector (νN(A), νM(B)). For the same value of m, several inequalities can be generated and all of them are best bounds for some values of Sk,t. Known bivariate Bonferroni-type inequalities are reconstructed and new inequalities are generated, too.
M. Giusti’s classification of the simple complete intersection singularities is characterized in terms of invariants. This is a basis for the implementation of a classifier in the computer algebra system Singular.
