A stream cipher is an encryption algorithm which encrypts arbitrary length plain text, using a (fixed length) key. Some stream ciphers generate a key stream from only the key, which is then XOR-combined with the plain text, others feed back plain text or cryptotext into the algorithm to create the ...
I would like to perform some benchmarking of different block and stream ciphers for general data (lossless and lossy data) encryption and decryption (with focus on power consumption). To get general ...
What are some of the high throughput and efficient ciphers? I know AES has generally good performance, but is there anything more efficient that it now? I would like to perform small performance test ...
