This document describes the encryption algorithm Rabbit.  It is a
stream cipher algorithm with a 128-bit key and 64-bit initialization
vector (IV).  The method was published in 2003 and has been subject to
public security and performance revision.  Its high performance makes
it particularly suited for the use with Internet protocols where large
amounts of data have to be processed.  This memo provides information 
for the Internet community.
