Visual Detection of Stream Cipher Sequences on ZUC Algorithm
R. Wu, J.Z. Zheng, X. Liang
The method of ensuring the network security was usually based on the stream cipher algorithms to encrypt the information. One way of testing the quality of a stream cipher algorithm was used NIST standard for testing. For the shortcoming of those detection methods that measure a segment of key streams, the results were not on systematic approaches. To improve these methods, a systematic measurement and visual scheme on key streams is hereby proposed,
which utilizes the testing results in a more accurate manner. By transforming the data into 2D visualization maps, the results are more visible to show the random characteristics of the ZUC.
