Authenticated Encryption Mode of VEST Ciphers

Sean O'Neil and Benjamin Gittins

Abstract: This paper demonstrates operation of the authenticated encryption mode in VEST ciphers. All VEST ciphers operating in the authenticated encryption mode with infinite error propagation provide keyed message authentication at the same speed as their keystream generation, with negligible overhead and maintaining their security ratings.
