    Abstract Securing digital image data is a key concern in today’s information-driven society. Effective encryption techniques are required to protect sensitive image data, with the Substitution-box (S-box) often playing a pivotal role in many symmetric encryption systems. This study introduces an innovative approach to creating S-boxes for encryption algorithms. The proposed S-boxes are tested for validity and non-linearity by incorporating them into an image encryption scheme. The nonlinearity measure of the proposed S-boxes is 112. These qualities significantly enhance its resistance to common cryptographic attacks, ensuring high image data security. Furthermore, to assess the robustness of… More >

    A Novel Approach for Security Enhancement of Data Encryption Standard

    Dawood Shah1,*, Tariq Shah1, Sajjad Shaukat Jamal2, Mohammad Mazyad Hazzazi2, Amer Aljaedi3, Adel R. Alharbi3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.75, No.3, pp. 5073-5086, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.020513

    Abstract Data Encryption Standard (DES) is a symmetric key cryptosystem that is applied in different cryptosystems of recent times. However, researchers found defects in the main assembling of the DES and declared it insecure against linear and differential cryptanalysis. In this paper, we have studied the faults and made improvements in their internal structure and get the new algorithm for Improved DES. The improvement is being made in the substitution step, which is the only nonlinear component of the algorithm. This alteration provided us with great outcomes and increase the strength of DES. Accordingly, a novel More >

    Asma Sajjad1, Humaira Ashraf1, NZ Jhanjhi2,3,*, Mamoona Humayun4, Mehedi Masud5, Mohammed A. AlZain6

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.74, No.2, pp. 3881-3898, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.030197

    Abstract The most valuable resource on the planet is no longer oil, but data. The transmission of this data securely over the internet is another challenge that comes with its ever-increasing value. In order to transmit sensitive information securely, researchers are combining robust cryptography and steganographic approaches. The objective of this research is to introduce a more secure method of video steganography by using Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) for embedding encrypted data and an intelligent frame selection algorithm to improve video imperceptibility. In the previous approach, DNA was used only for frame selection. If this DNA is… More >

    Construction and Optimization of TRNG Based Substitution Boxes for Block Encryption Algorithms

    Muhammad Fahad Khan1,2,*, Khalid Saleem1, Mohammed Alotaibi3, Mohammad Mazyad Hazzazi4, Eid Rehman2, Aaqif Afzaal Abbasi2, Muhammad Asif Gondal5

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.73, No.2, pp. 2679-2696, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.027655

    Abstract Internet of Things is an ecosystem of interconnected devices that are accessible through the internet. The recent research focuses on adding more smartness and intelligence to these edge devices. This makes them susceptible to various kinds of security threats. These edge devices rely on cryptographic techniques to encrypt the pre-processed data collected from the sensors deployed in the field. In this regard, block cipher has been one of the most reliable options through which data security is accomplished. The strength of block encryption algorithms against different attacks is dependent on its nonlinear primitive which is… More >

    Mode of Operation for Modification, Insertion, and Deletion of Encrypted Data

    Taek-Young Youn1, Nam-Su Jho2,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.73, No.1, pp. 151-164, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.026653


    Due to the development of 5G communication, many aspects of information technology (IT) services are changing. With the development of communication technologies such as 5G, it has become possible to provide IT services that were difficult to provide in the past. One of the services made possible through this change is cloud-based collaboration. In order to support secure collaboration over cloud, encryption technology to securely manage dynamic data is essential. However, since the existing encryption technology is not suitable for encryption of dynamic data, a new technology that can provide encryption for dynamic data is

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.32, No.1, pp. 573-587, 2022, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2022.020969

    Abstract Recent developments in low power electronic devices integrated into wireless communication technologies resulted in the domain of wireless sensor networks (WSN), which finds in applications in diverse data gathering and tracking applications. Since WSN is mostly deployed in harsh and inaccessible environments, it is necessary to design energy efficient and security solutions. The clustering technique is an effective way to lengthen the lifetime of WSN. But most of the clustering techniques elect cluster heads (CHs) irrespective of clusters. To resolve this issue, this paper presents a new intelligent metaheuristics based energy aware clustering with data… More >

    Repeated Attribute Optimization for Big Data Encryption

    Abdalla Alameen*

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.40, No.1, pp. 53-64, 2022, DOI:10.32604/csse.2022.017597

    Abstract Big data denotes the variety, velocity, and massive volume of data. Existing databases are unsuitable to store big data owing to its high volume. Cloud computing is an optimal solution to process and store big data. However, the significant issue lies in handling access control and privacy, wherein the data should be encrypted and unauthorized user access must be restricted through efficient access control. Attribute-based encryption (ABE) permits users to encrypt and decrypt data. However, for the policy to work in practical scenarios, the attributes must be repeated. In the case of specific policies, it… More >
