S.~Doroshenko \and A.~Fionov \and A.~Lubkin \and V.~Monarev \and B.~Ryabko

Abstract: The algorithms submitted to the ECRYPT Stream Cipher Project (eSTREAM) were tested using the recently suggested statistical test named ``Book Stack''. All the ciphers except ZK-Crypt have passed the tests. The paper briefly describes the essence of the test. Computer implementation of the test in C++ language is supplied.
