Fast stream ciphers are used extensively for encrypted data transmission in mobile networks and over multigigabit links. CryptMT, a recently proposed stream cipher, is one of the final candidates for standardization by the European Union's eSTREAM project. Cryptanalysis of CryptMT has discovered no feasible attacks thus far. The authors present a scalable technique for parallelizing CryptMT and present an area-efficient hardware implementation on a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). On the Xilinx Virtex-2 Pro FPGA, a 2? parallelization delivers throughputs of up to 16 Gbits/s while using minimal logic resources (1,782 slices).
