In this paper we design a stream cipher that uses the algebraic structure of the multiplicative group ZZp (where p is a big prime number used in ElGamal algorithm), by defining a quasigroup of order p− 1 and by doing quasigroup string transformations. The cryptographical strength of the proposed stream cipher is based on the fact that breaking it would be at least as hard as solving systems of multivariate polynomial equations modulo big prime number p which is NP-hard problem and there are no… CONTINUE READING
