This is by no means a scientific observation, but it seems to me that stream ciphers receive a lot less attention than block ciphers. Is there any reason for this? (Is it because block ciphers are accepted as superior?)
Additionally, since there is no "AES" of stream ciphers, is there any reference of currently secure stream ciphers other than the few green entries on this Wikipedia page? I know about NESSIE/eSTREAM but much of the trust in an algorithm comes not just from its claimed security, but also from the amount of scrutiny it has received, and it seems that none of those ciphers has been the subject of much debate.
