RSA Stream
RSA common modulus attack

# Description

I made a stream cipher out of RSA! But people say I made a huge mistake. Can you decrypt my cipher?

# Solution

The cipher is the result of `stream ^ q`. Since `q` is known, we can reverse the stream:
1
import gmpy2
2
from Crypto.Util.number import long_to_bytes, bytes_to_long, getStrongPrime, inverse
3
4
β
5
with open("chal.enc", "rb") as f:
6
7
β
8
9
β
10
e = 0x10001
11
for a in range(0,len(f),256):
12
q = f[a:a+256]
13
if len(q) < 256:q = pad(q, 256)
14
q = bytes_to_long(q)
15
c = cipher[a:a+256]
16
c = bytes_to_long(c)
17
β
18
stream = c ^ q
19
print('e =', e)
20
print('stream =', stream)
21
β
22
e = gmpy2.next_prime(e)

The values of `e` are also known. Since the same modulus is used for each value of `e`, we can perform a common modulus attack:
