This is a first attempt to develop shift-register-based encryption methods with nonlinear characteristics. We propose some new stream enciphering schemes composed of standard components which are easy to implement and appear to be difficult to break by either a linear attack or statistical analysis.
Computer confidentiality, cryptography, J-K flip-flops, maximum-length shift-register sequences, stream enciphering schemes.
