ConSum v0: An Experimental Cipher
David A. Madore
We present an experimental block cipher, ConSum, based on a hitherto unstudied design element: the Conway transformation. ConSum features an extremely simple design and the ability to operate with arbitrary key lengths, block sizes and round numbers. We study it empirically and statistically so as to illustrate how it might be secure.
