Abstract: HC-256 is a software-efficient stream cipher. It generates keystream from a 256-bit secret key and a 256-bit initialization vector. The encryption speed of the C implementation of HC-256 is about 1.9 bits per clock cycle (4.2 cycle/byte) on the Intel Pentium 4 processor. A variant of HC-256 is also introduced in this paper.
