Abstract:

With the ever-increasing amount of data stored on computers, the need for security in transmission becomes greater and greater. The author considers some new stream enciphering schemes based on J-K flip-flops. The data is considered to be a stream of binary bits. There are two main types of encipherment schemes a block scheme and a stream scheme. Since the aim of this paper is to present some new stream enciphering schemes, the author describes briefly a general stream enciphering scheme.
