### Abstract

A stream cipher based algorithm for computing Message Authentication Codes is described. The algorithm employs the internal state of the underlying cipher to minimize the required additional-toencryption computational e#ort and maintain general simplicity of the design. The scheme appears to provide proper statistical properties, a comfortable level of resistance against forgery attacks in a chosen ciphertext attack model and high e#ciency in software implementations.

Examples of some recent designs include OCB =-=[4]-=-, OMAC [7], XCBC [6], EAX [8], CWC [9]. Parallely a growing interest in stream cipher design can be observed, however along with a relative shortage of dedicated message authentication schemes. Regard... |
