Abstract

   Multilinear Galois Mode (MGM) is an authenticated encryption with
   associated data block cipher mode based on EtM principle.  MGM is
   defined for use with 64-bit and 128-bit block ciphers.

1.  Introduction

   Multilinear Galois Mode (MGM) is an authenticated encryption with
   associated data block cipher mode based on EtM principle.  MGM is
   defined for use with 64-bit and 128-bit block.  The MGM design
   principles can easily be applied to other block sizes.

1.1.  Existing Constructions

   The text will be added in the future versions of the draft.

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",

   document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

3.  Basic Terms and Definitions

   This document uses the following terms and definitions for the sets
   and operations on the elements of these sets:

   V*      the set of all bit strings of a finite length (hereinafter
           referred to as strings), including the empty string;
           substrings and string components are enumerated from right to
           left starting from zero;

   V_s     the set of all bit strings of length s, where s is a non-
           negative integer;

   |X|     the bit length of the bit string X (if X is an empty string,
           then |X| = 0);

   X || Y  concatenation of strings X and Y both belonging to V*, i.e.,
           a string from V_{|X|+|Y|}, where the left substring from
           V_{|X|} is equal to X, and the right substring from V_{|Y|}
           is equal to Y;
