Proposing an Encryption Algorithm based on DES

Omar Zughoul [2] | Hajar Mat Jani [3]

Abstract: In this paper, a new method for key generation using Data Encryption Standard (DES) is proposed in order to make it more secure than DES algorithm, but at the same time faster than 3DES algorithm. Some parts of the DES are modified to improve its security and performance aspects. The proposed algorithm is named XS-DES (Extra Secure DES). We modify the process of key generation to improve its level of security, and present the proposed algorithms design structure in more detail. We increase the size of the key from 64 bits into 128 bits, and then split the key into two halves, left and right (Kl, Kr), and each one consists of 64 bits. XS-DES will be used to encrypt some important information inside the database, like passwords, exam scores, and other confidential details. In other words, to increase the security in the database and protect it from attackers, all critical information must be encrypted using a strong encryption algorithm and a more secure algorithm (XS-DES) is proposed here. A workable Online Examination System (OES) that applies XS-DES and the original DES algorithms is developed. It has gone through some preliminary testings and a comparison is performed between the results of these algorithms based on their strengths in handling database attackers.
