Why IV Setup for Stream Ciphers is Difficult

pdf-format:
Document 1.pdf (218 KB)


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.
