Statistical Testing for Disk Encryption Modes of Operations
Mohamed Abo El-Fotouh Klaus Diepold
In this paper we present a group of statistical tests that explore the random behavior of encryption modes of operations, when used in disk encryption applications. The results of these tests help us to better understand how these modes work. We tested ten modes of operations with the presented statistical tests, five of the narrow-block type and the other five of the wide-block type. Our analysis shows some weakness in some of these modes.
