Block Ciphers and Stream Ciphers: The State of the Art
Abstract: In these lecture notes we survey the state of the art in symmetric key encryption, in particular
in the block ciphers and stream ciphers area. The area of symmetric key encryption has been
very active in the last five years due to growing interest from academic and industry research,
standardization efforts like AES, NESSIE and CRYPTREC, as well as due to ease of government control
over export of cryptography.
Category / Keywords: secret-key cryptography / Block ciphers, stream ciphers, cryptanalysis, design, AES, NESSIE, CRYPTREC, STORK, E-CRYPT
