http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=153920&ref=Feed
In the cryptographic research an important operation is to determine the byte-frequency of non-encrypted and encrypted files. This action allows us to appraise the quality of the cryptographic algorithms. This application implements a `byte-frequency analyzer` in Maple. Results are displayed in column graphs, using both linear and logarithmic scales on the y-axis. The logarithmic y-axis is very useful if the differences between the byte values are large. The displayed column graphs can be exported in six formats (Bitmap, PNG, GIF, JPEG, Encapsulated Postcript, PDF and Windows Metafile) for use in documents concerning cryptography and file processing tools.<img src="/view.aspx?si=153920/bytefreq.png" alt="Byte Frequency Analyzer" align="left"/>In the cryptographic research an important operation is to determine the byte-frequency of non-encrypted and encrypted files.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=153903&ref=Feed
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has released the final version of its "Secure Hash Algorithm-3" (SHA-3) standard in August 2015. The new standard ("Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 202") specifies four cryptographic hash functions, called SHA3-224, SHA3-256, SHA3-384 and SHA3-512, as well as two Extendable-Output Functions (XOFs), called SHAKE128 and SHAKE256. These functions are based on the Keccak sponge function, designed by G. Bertoni, J. Daemen, M. Peeters and G. Van Assche. The hash functions are an essential tool for securing the integrity of electronic information and the XOFs offer the added flexibility of having a variable output length. This application contains an implementation of these functions and also of the SHA-3-based Message Authentication Code HMAC.<img src="/view.aspx?si=153903/keccak.jpg" alt="The SHA-3 Family of Cryptographic Hash Functions and Extendable-Output Functions" align="left"/>The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has released the final version of its "Secure Hash Algorithm-3" (SHA-3) standard in August 2015.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=153863&ref=Feed
An easy-to-use interactive Maple implementation of transport encryption scheme has been presented. It allows to encrypt any file with arbitrary extension stored in the used computer system and in portable memory devices. The encrypted file may contain all 7-bit characters. Therefore, the encrypted file can be securely transmitted over the internet as an e-mail enclosure. The application encrypts also the name of the plaintext file: this way, the kind of content of the plaintext file is hidden. The encrypted file is saved in the same folder as the plaintext file. On encryption/decryption in the GUI Text Area the user will see an exhaustive information about the performed task. On decryption, the encrypted file is removed. The presented applications sm128b.mw must have permission to save and remove the processed files. It is worth to know that the secret key in the application is embedded. Thus, any user can embed his own secret key in the application in many ways.<img src="/view.aspx?si=153863/transport.png" alt="Maple Implementation of the Secure Transport Encryption Scheme" align="left"/>An easy-to-use interactive Maple implementation of transport encryption scheme has been presented.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=153841&ref=Feed
An easy-to-use Maple implementation of transport encryption has been presented. It allows encrypting any file with arbitrary extension stored in the used computer system. The encrypted file contains space, alphabetic and decimal digit characters and the following special characters !#$%&'()*+,-./:;<=>?@[]^_`{|}~. These 93 printable characters can be defined by the set {32, 33, 35, seq(i, i=36 .. 91), seq(i, i=93 .. 126)} of byte values. Therefore, the encrypted file can be not only securely transmitted over the internet as an e-mail enclosure, but also protected effectively against unauthorized access. The application encrypts the name of the plaintext file as well: this way, the kind of content of the plaintext file is hidden. The encrypted file is saved in the same folder as the plaintext file. The size of the encrypted file is about 22.3% greater than the size of the plaintext file. On encryption/decryption in the GUI Text Area the user will see exhaustive information about the performed task. On decryption, the encrypted file is removed. It is worth knowing that the secret key in the application is embedded. Thus, any user can install his own secret key in the application in many ways. For example, he can change the value of the variable skc and the value of the variable seed in the procedures fne and fnd. The presented applications fed479k.mw must have permission to save and to remove the processed files. For security reason the application worksheet fed479k.mw ought to be stored in the meticulously watched over pen drive.<img src="/view.aspx?si=153841/im.jpg" alt="Maple Implementation of Transport Encryption Scheme Using the Secret Key of Length 479 Bits" align="left"/>An easy-to-use Maple implementation of transport encryption has been presented.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=153817&ref=Feed
In the `RFC 4648` document (http://www.rfc-base.org/rfc-4648.html) the commonly used base 64, base 32, and base 16 encoding schemes are decribed. The output file, encoded according to this document, is about 33%, 60% and 100% greater than the input file, respectively. The presented application uses the base value equal to 93, and now the encoded file is only about 22% greater than the input file. The application must have a permission to save and to remove the files processed. It is easy to use - the reader is informed which tasks are being performed for any selected option, namely, he will know the input file size and name, the output file size and name, the encoding/decoding rates.In the `RFC 4648` document (http://www.rfc-base.org/rfc-4648.html) the commonly used base 64, base 32, and base 16 encoding schemes are decribed.

Generating (pseudo-)random values is a frequent task in simulations and other programs. For some situations, you want to generate some combinatorial or algebraic values, such as a list or a polynomial; in other situations, you need random numbers, from a distribution that is uniform or more complicated. In this article I'll talk about all of these situations.<img src="/view.aspx?si=153662/thumb.jpg" alt="Generating random numbers efficiently" align="left"/>Generating (pseudo-)random values is a frequent task in simulations and other programs.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=153538&ref=Feed
<p>The submission shows how to implement the user-friendly, but mathematically sophisticated strong e-mail encryption scheme using the ElGamal algorithm working in the multiplicative group of GF(p^m) (http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=4403, J. L. G. Pardo - Introduction to Cryptography with Maple). On unpacking the file `elgmail.zip` the user will see three public key files: `ElGpub_Eve_Flower.m`, `ElGpub_Jack_Herod.m`, `ElGpub_Michele_Lazy.m` and three application worksheets: `ElGedm_Flower.mw`, `ElGedm_Herod.mw`, `ElGedm_Lazy.mw` in which the proper private keys are embedded. Each of the three users can encrypt an e-mail letter and can send the encrypted message to the required addressee, knowing its public key. Evidently, any user can also decrypt the proper encrypted message, addressed to him. The way of generating the public and private keys demonstrates the worksheet ElGkg.mw. The data contained in the names of the computed keys using the worksheet ElGkg.mw is evident. In the presented example the e-mail message should contain no more than 782 printable characters with byte values less than 127. The scheme can be accepted for any e-mail system: the public keys and encrypted messages are Maple `*.m` format files containing characters with 91 byte values from the set {10, 33 .. 122}. The user can also observe the time needed for encryption, decryption and the computation of keys, and the encryption scheme redundancy. An example test message and its cryptogram is also presented and the user can check for which the encrypted test message ought to be sent.</p><img src="/view.aspx?si=153538/image.PNG" alt="ElGamal E-mail Encryption Scheme" align="left"/><p>The submission shows how to implement the user-friendly, but mathematically sophisticated strong e-mail encryption scheme using the ElGamal algorithm working in the multiplicative group of GF(p^m) (http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=4403, J.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=147752&ref=Feed
<p>This maplet application fulfilling the role of the secret key uses base 64 encoding scheme non-linear transformations for encrypting or decrypting e-mailed files. The encrypted files with extension ".e64" contain only 64 characters belonging to the set of base 64 encoding scheme alphabet and 23 characters "()<>[]{}|-*^_!?@#$%&,:;". The application uses original encryption tool named C64K366. The number following the letter "C" means that any encrypted file contains only 64 characters with ASCII decimals belonging to the set {33, 35 .. 38, 40 .. 45, 47 .. 60, 62 .. 91, 93 .. 95, 97 .. 125}. K366 means that the secret key length equals to 366 bits. For proper functioning of the application, the c64k366.maplet must be saved in a location with no spaces in the path name. </p><img src="/applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="C64K366 "Keyless" File Encryption" align="left"/><p>This maplet application fulfilling the role of the secret key uses base 64 encoding scheme non-linear transformations for encrypting or decrypting e-mailed files.
