LOKI ¿ A cryptographic primitive for authentication and secrecy applications

Chapter


Abstract


  • This paper provides an overview of the LOK1 encryption primitive which may be used to encrypt and decrypt a 64-bit block of data using a 64-bit key. The LOKI primitive may be used in any mode of operation currently defined for ISO DEA-1, with which it is interface compatible [AAAA83]. Also described are two modes of operation of the LOKI primitive which compute a 64-bit, and 128-bit, Message Authentication Code (or hash value). These modes of operation may be used to provide authentication of a communications session, or of data files.
