Abstract

In a world where electronic devices with different characteristics are networked, privacy is an essential element for the communicating process. Privacy can be achieved by encryption algorithms with unique features based on the application that are deployed. In this paper a word-oriented stream cipher, or Morpheus, for both hardware and software devices, is proposed. Morpheus targets multimedia applications, such as Games-On-Demand or IPTV, where data are usually streamed over different kind of networks and devices. Morpheus behaves very well in all known statistical tests and is resilient to known attacks for both synchronous and self-synchronous encryption modes.
