LILI-II is not Broken

William Millan and Ed Dawson

Abstract: In this note we point out that a recently published attack on the LILI-II stream cipher does not do better than generic time-memory tradeoff techniques (which generalise exhaustive search and apply to any 128-bit key cipher). Thus we assert that LILI-II remains unbroken.
