An ECB mode of operation that incorporates padding encrypts a 200 bit message using DES. What is the necessary amount of padding in bytes
Group of answer choices
none of the above
An ECB mode of operation that incorporates padding encrypts a 200 bit message using DES. So the necessary amount of padding is 8 bytes.
because using DES with a single 64-bit key is definitely no longer recommended, but we use it here for simplicity to demonstrate the principle of padding for an 8-byte block. It is easy to extend this to a more-secure 192-bit Triple DES key or 256-bit Blowfish key. Similarly we use ECB mode to avoid the complications of initialization vectors.
