Fish: A fast software stream cipher
- 1.9k Downloads
This paper describes a fast software stream cipher called Fish based on the shrinking principle applied to the lagged Fibonacci generator (Fish — Fibonacci shrinking). It is designed to make full use of the 32 bit word length of popular processors. On an Intel 486 clocked with 33 MHz a data rate of 15 Mbit/s is achieved with a C implementation.
