Abstract

A novel attack scheme is proposed based on a phase retrieval algorithm. In the scheme, the attacker interferes with the user’s normal communication through wiretapping the channel and falsifying the ciphertext and quickly cracks the system by gathering information. The difference of this attack scheme from previous schemes is the dispensability of certain assumptions, which results in a higher value of practical application and further significance of the research. In this paper, the double random phase encoding is taken as an example to verify the validity of the scheme. The results show that our proposed scheme is feasible and efficient.
