Information technology -- Security techniques -- Modes of operation for an n-bit block cipher

ISO/IEC DIS 10116 (Ed 4), Information technology -- Security techniques -- Modes of operation for an n-bit block cipher

Committee: ISO/IEC JTC1/SC 27

Comment Period Closes: 2015-10-17

This International Standard establishes five modes of operation for applications of an n-bit block cipher (e.g. protection of data transmission, data storage). The defined modes only provide protection of data confidentiality. Protection of data integrity is not within the scope of this International Standard. Also most modes do not protect the confidentiality of message length information.
