Security Weaknesses in Maurer-Like Randomized Stream Ciphers
N. Ferguson, B. Schneier, and D. Wagner
Fifth Australasian Conference on Information Security and Privacy (ACISP 2000), to appear.
ABSTRACT: TriStrata appears to have implemented a variation of Maurer's randomised cipher. We define a variation of Maurer's cipher that appears to be similar to the TriStrata version, and show several cryptanalytical attacks against our variant.
