That step is specified by original claim 8 dependent on original claim 1 and detailed by original claim 9 which introduces an "access value" and a "verification value", those values being defined e.

As present claim 1 reflects this teaching, the Board is satisfied that the subject-matter of the claim does not extend beyond the content of the application as filed. Article 84 EPC - Clarity and conciseness of the claims; support by the description 3. At the same time, the definition is precise enough to exclude undisclosed or speculative embodiments.

Essential features of the method e. Hence, the claim is also adequately supported by the description. They are also clear and supported by the description. Claim 38 relates to a computer program for performing the method of claim 1. Claim 39 specifies a method for using the verification value formed by the method of claim 1.

Claim 48 defines a component for performing the method of claim 1. Claim 60 relates to a distributed file system comprising such a component.

Article 52 1 2 3 EPC - Eligibility for patent protection 4. A technical effect consists not only in the encryption of files but also in an efficient verification and identification of encrypted files in the distributed file system. A technical effect consists not only in the way the files have been encrypted and provided with verification values but also in the use of the verification values to identify encrypted blocks in the distributed file system.

On the other hand, the claims on file do not relate to the subject-matter disclosed in Figure 12 or 13 producing and signing a manifest.

Hence, the Board has no doubt that the present claims are entitled to the filing date of A0, i. Article 54 3 EPC - Post-published prior art 6. The priority claim of D0 is prima facie justified since D0 reproduces D0'.

Article 54 1 EPC - Novelty 7.

Further, without using the term, D0 provides an indexing structure for the file portions: "for each file portion, there is a corresponding ordered tuple that contains a cipher object and its associated information i.

In particular, the list contains information that identifies the keys that were used to encrypt the representations i. Those keys constitute access keys within the meaning of the present application, and the encrypted hash values constitute access values. The list "or other data structure" may be implemented as a tree D0, page 18, lines 6 to This is also the preferred embodiment of the indexing structure described by the present application A2, paragraphs to Hence, the Karn algorithm does not encrypt a piece of plaintext by its own hash value.

Nor is D1 concerned with access or verification values for managing blocks of a file in a distributed file system. However, that remark seems to relate to the inventors' knowledge as documented by reference D0' A2, paragraph Each file in a database is given a name based on a hash of its contents.

Thus, duplicate files can be recognised efficiently by their short names. However, the citation does not deal with encryption, let alone convergent encryption. That is, it does not contemplate using the hash value of a content as a key for encrypting the content content hash keying. Closest prior art 8. The problem of file duplication obviously arises in such a system even though D2 does not address it whether the system is implemented as a centralised or a distributed file system.

The Karn algorithm of D1 represents a mere encryption algorithm; D1 does not disclose why and how that algorithm would be expanded into a file system. Article 56 EPC - Inventive step 9.

This includes the Karn algorithm which is known from D1. However, the Karn algorithm does not represent a convergent encryption proper see point 7. Calling the overhead an indexing structure, tree, list or table does not provide any non-obvious technical contribution. On the other hand, the decision under appeal points out that a complete search has not yet been carried out.

Therefore, before the presence of an inventive step can be acknowledged and the grant of a patent can be envisaged, the search for relevant prior art will have to be completed with respect to the claim set filed on 1 March This should be the next step of the proceedings. One advantage of the Feistel design is that the encryption and decryption stages are similar, sometimes identical, requiring only a reversal of the key operation, thus dramatically reducing the size of the code software or circuitry hardware necessary to implement the cipher.

One of Feistel's early papers describing this operation is " Cryptography and Computer Privacy " Scientific American, May , 5 , Block ciphers can operate in one of several modes; the following are the most important: Electronic Codebook ECB mode is the simplest, most obvious application: the secret key is used to encrypt the plaintext block to form a ciphertext block.

Two identical plaintext blocks, then, will always generate the same ciphertext block.

ECB is susceptible to a variety of brute-force attacks because of the fact that the same plaintext block will always encrypt to the same ciphertext , as well as deletion and insertion attacks. In addition, a single bit error in the transmission of the ciphertext results in an error in the entire block of decrypted plaintext. Cipher Block Chaining CBC mode adds a feedback mechanism to the encryption scheme; the plaintext is exclusively-ORed XORed with the previous ciphertext block prior to encryption so that two identical plaintext blocks will encrypt differently.

While CBC protects against many brute-force, deletion, and insertion attacks, a single bit error in the ciphertext yields an entire block error in the decrypted plaintext block and a bit error in the next decrypted plaintext block.

Cipher Feedback CFB mode is a block cipher implementation as a self-synchronizing stream cipher. CFB mode allows data to be encrypted in units smaller than the block size, which might be useful in some applications such as encrypting interactive terminal input.

If we were using one-byte CFB mode, for example, each incoming character is placed into a shift register the same size as the block, encrypted, and the block transmitted.

At the receiving side, the ciphertext is decrypted and the extra bits in the block i. CFB mode generates a keystream based upon the previous ciphertext the initial key comes from an Initialization Vector [IV]. In this mode, a single bit error in the ciphertext affects both this block and the following one. Output Feedback OFB mode is a block cipher implementation conceptually similar to a synchronous stream cipher.

OFB prevents the same plaintext block from generating the same ciphertext block by using an internal feedback mechanism that generates the keystream independently of both the plaintext and ciphertext bitstreams. In OFB, a single bit error in ciphertext yields a single bit error in the decrypted plaintext. Counter CTR mode is a relatively modern addition to block ciphers.

Unlike ECB, however, CTR uses different key inputs to different blocks so that two identical blocks of plaintext will not result in the same ciphertext. Finally, each block of ciphertext has specific location within the encrypted message. DES is a Feistel block-cipher employing a bit key that operates on bit blocks. DES has a complex set of rules and transformations that were designed specifically to yield fast hardware implementations and slow software implementations, although this latter point is not significant today since the speed of computer processors is several orders of magnitude faster today than even twenty years ago.

DES was based somewhat on an earlier cipher from Feistel called Lucifer which, some sources report, had a bit key. This was rejected, partially in order to fit the algorithm onto a single chip and partially because of the National Security Agency NSA. By combining 64 additional key bits to the plaintext prior to encryption, effectively increases the keylength to bits. The algorithm can use a variable block length and key length; the latest specification allowed any combination of keys lengths of , , or bits and blocks of length , , or bits.

They, too, have approved a number of cipher suites for various applications.

Also available internationally. RC1: Designed on paper but never implemented. It's code has not been made public although many companies have licensed RC2 for use in their products. Described in RFC RC3: Found to be breakable during development. RC4: A stream cipher using variable-sized keys; it is widely used in commercial cryptography products.

More detail about RC4 and a little about Spritz can be found below in Section 5. RC5 : A block-cipher supporting a variety of block sizes 32, 64, or bits , key sizes, and number of encryption passes over the data. Key lengths can vary from 32 to bits in length. Twofish : A bit block cipher using , , or bit keys. Designed to be highly secure and highly flexible, well-suited for large microprocessors, 8-bit smart card microprocessors, and dedicated hardware.

Camellia has some characteristics in common with AES: a bit block size, support for , , and bit key lengths, and suitability for both software and hardware implementations on common bit processors as well as 8-bit processors e.

Also described in RFC Designed for hardware and software implementations, and is resistant to differential and linear cryptanalysis.

KASUMI is the intended confidentiality and integrity algorithm for both message content and signaling data for emerging mobile communications systems. SEED : A block cipher using bit blocks and bit keys. ARIA : A bit block cipher employing , , and bit keys to encrypt bit blocks in 12, 14, and 16 rounds, depending on the key size.

Developed by large group of researchers from academic institutions, research institutes, and federal agencies in South Korea in , and subsequently named a national standard. CLEFIA is one of the new-generation lightweight blockcipher algorithms designed after AES, offering high performance in software and hardware as well as a lightweight implementation in hardware. Skipjack : SKC scheme proposed, along with the Clipper chip , as part of the never-implemented Capstone project.

Although the details of the algorithm were never made public, Skipjack was a block cipher using an bit key and 32 iteration cycles per bit block.

Capstone, proposed by NIST and the NSA as a standard for public and government use, met with great resistance by the crypto community largely because the design of Skipjack was classified coupled with the key escrow requirement of the Clipper chip. TEA was originally developed in , and employed a bit key, bit block, and 64 rounds of operation. Use of this scheme is reportedly one of the reasons that the National Security Agency NSA can easily decode voice and data calls over mobile phone networks.

Course Syllabus

Using simple arithmetic operations, the algorithms offers fast encryption and decryption by use of efficient implementations. KCipher-2 has been used for industrial applications, especially for mobile health monitoring and diagnostic services in Japan. Salsa20 uses a pseudorandom function based on bit whole word addition, bitwise addition XOR , and rotation operations, aka add-rotate-xor ARX operations.

Salsa20 uses a bit key although a bit key variant also exists. In , Bernstein published ChaCha , a new family of ciphers related to Salsa FPE schemes are used for such purposes as encrypting social security numbers, credit card numbers, limited size protocol traffic, etc.On an auxiliary basis, the appellant requested that the decision be set aside and the case be remitted to the department of first instance "for further examination of the requirements of Article 52 EPC".

One or more computer readable media comprising computer-executable instructions that, when executed, perform the method as recited in claim 1. Secret Key Cryptography Secret key cryptography methods employ a single key for both encryption and decryption.

Since the case must be remitted to the examining division for a search to be carried out followed by continued examination, oral proceedings before the Board need not be held cf. Salsa20 uses a pseudorandom function based on bit whole word addition, bitwise addition XOR , and rotation operations, aka add-rotate-xor ARX operations.
