New constructions in linear cryptanalysis of block ciphers

At the beginning of the paper we describe the state of art in linear cryptanalysis of block ciphers. We present algorithms for finding best linear expressions proposed by Matsui [9] and Ohta [11]. We sketch basic linear cryptanalysis (0R, 1R, 2R attacks) and the known extensions. We explain the advantages and the limitations of applying linear cryptanalysis and its extensions to block ciphers. In the second part of the paper we describe our proposal of a new extension to linear attack based on the application of a probabilistic counting method. It allows the reduction of two consecutive rounds and form the basis for mounting e.g. 3R attacks. We present experimental results of the implementation of this attack to the Data Encryption Standard.
