A new stream cipher: DICING
Abstract: In this paper, we will propose a new synchronous stream cipher named DICING, which can be taken as a clock-controlled one but with a new mechanism of altering steps. With the simple construction, DICING has satisfactory performance, faster than AES about two times. For the security, there have not been found weakness for the known attacks, the key sizes can be 128bits and 256bits respectively.
