Attackers can also use the technique to map all ciphertexts to corresponding plaintexts, a feat that breaks a website's underlying cryptosystem.

Both, however, require large numbers of known or chosen plaintexts, so a simple defense against them is to rekey often enough that the enemy cannot collect sufficient texts.

This does not appear to have much practical importance since both require enormous numbers of known plaintexts and since DES has been repeatedly broken by brute force anyway.

This does not appear to have much practical importance since both require enormous numbers of known plaintexts and since DES has been repeatedly broken by brute force anyway.

Using chosen (or lucky) plaintexts, vary all but one of the nonsecret bits, and sum the output bits (mod 2, that is, XOR).

Assume the enemy is able to get or guess some plaintext; he makes a little table, his own "code book" showing which ciphertext blocks correspond to which plaintexts.
