This paper presents a new way of constructing binary cascade clock-controlled LFSR sequence generators as building blocks for stream ciphers. In these constructions the bottleneck of multiple clocking shift registers is removed, resulting in so called jump-controlled sequence generators, that operate in a single clock pulse and are most efficient to implement. The constructions make use of special properties of irreducible polynomials over finite fields. This paper also aims at giving insight… CONTINUE READING
