Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Created: (OFFICE-3297) Part 3 [Blowfish]Reference Out-of-Date, Misleading

Part 3 [Blowfish] Reference Out-of-Date, Misleading

                 Key: OFFICE-3297
                 URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3297
             Project: OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: External References, Packaging, Part 3 (Packages), Security
    Affects Versions: ODF 1.2 CD 05, ODF 1.1, ODF 1.0 (second edition), ODF 1.0
         Environment: This applies to all versions of ODF but the description and proposal is specific to ODF 1.2 CD05, with correction proposed for ODF 1.2 CD06.  This is part of a series of issues that apply to encryption in Part 3 and should probably be reviewed and discussed as a block.
            Reporter: Dennis Hamilton
            Assignee: Dennis Hamilton
             Fix For: ODF 1.2 CD 06

The current reference when there is mention of the default Blowfish CFB encryption algorithm is

[Blowfish] Bruce Schneier, Applied Cryptography (Second Edition), John Wiley & Sons, ISBN: 0-471-11709-9, 1996.

While Blowfish is discussed in the referenced technical publication, that is not all that is there.  In addition, the description of CFB (and alternatives) is not specific to Blowfish and is discussed in a different part of the text.  

Finally, there is an errata for Applied Cryptography (Second Edition) that is relevant to the consideration of various methods (including CFB) in employing an encryption algorithm.
