Why IV Setup for Stream Ciphers is Difficult

pdf-format:

Abstract

In recent years, the initialization vector (IV) setup has proven to be the most vulnerable point when designing secure stream ciphers. In this paper, we take a look at possible reasons why this is the case, identifying numerous open research problems in cryptography.
