This memo describes SIV (Synthetic Initialization Vector), a block
cipher mode of operation. SIV takes a key, a plaintext, and multiple
variable-length octet strings that will be authenticated but not
encrypted. It produces a ciphertext having the same length as the
plaintext and a synthetic initialization vector. Depending on how it
is used, SIV achieves either the goal of deterministic
authenticated encryption or the goal of nonce-based, misuse-resistant
authenticated encryption. This memo provides information for the Internet
