A Cellular Automata based Method for Predicting Binary Sequences

P. Caballero-Gil and A. Fúster-Sabater (Spain)


applications of cellular automata, cryptographic sequences.


The paper studies the application of linear hybrid Cellular Automata (CA) to generate some binary sequences with ap plication in cryptography. In this sense, we propose a novel CA-based linear model that behaves exactly the same as the reproduced cryptographic keystream generators. Due to the simplicity of the transition rules that govern these linear automata, the implementation of such models is quite easy. Some illustrative examples showing the potential use fulness of the proposed tool for cryptanalysts complete the work.
