A Framework for Chosen IV Statistical Analysis of Stream Ciphers

  title={A Framework for Chosen IV Statistical Analysis of Stream Ciphers},
  author={H{\aa}kan Englund and Thomas Johansson and Meltem S{\"o}nmez Turan},
Saarinen recently proposed a chosen IV statistical attack, called the d-monomial test, and used it to find weaknesses in several proposed stream ciphers. In this paper we generalize this idea and propose a framework for chosen IV statistical attacks using a polynomial description. We propose a few new statistical attacks, apply them on some existing stream cipher proposals, and give some conclusions regarding the strength of their IV initialization. In particular, we experimentally detected… CONTINUE READING
