I am working on Intel AES-NI library and since the AES function is coded using low-level assembly instructions. I could not see how the IV or initial counter increases in CTR mode. In general, how ...
Is it advisable to use AES CTR mode with the counter initialized to 0? How good is it in security terms?
Say I am using a random key to construct a stream cipher with, say, AES in CTR mode, which will never be used to encrypt more than one data stream. Is there any advantage, no matter how small, to ...
Many sources mention that IVs must not be reused with the same key in CTR mode, for encrypting 2 different pieces of data, because that totally destroys security - but I haven't found an explanation ...
