Highly Reliable Synchronous Stream Cipher System for Link Encryption

  • HoonJae Lee
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 3982)


A highly reliable synchronous stream cipher system with absolute synchronization is proposed. The proposed system includes an improved initial synchronization with highly reliable keystream synchronization in a noisy channel (about BER=0.1). Furthermore, encryption algorithms with a LILI-II, a Dragon and a Parallel LM for data confidentiality, and a zero-suppression algorithm for system stabilization are all designed and analyzed.
