Software Specifications For Tinnitus Utilizing Whitenoise(Revised Feb 2004)

Stephen Boren and Andre Brisson

Abstract: Whitenoise Substitution Stream Cipher is a multi-key-Super key hierarchical cryptographic process. This cryptographic system utilizes a method of encryption that can reasonably be described conceptually as an algorithmic representation of a multi-dimensional encrypting cipher matrix. The Whitenoise algorithm takes several sub keys and then creates a very long non-repeating key stream. This was revised to respond to security concerns brought up in 2003/250.
