This document describes the KCipher-2 encryption algorithm.
KCipher-2 is a stream cipher with a 128-bit key and a 128-bit
initialization vector.  Since the algorithm for KCipher-2 was
published in 2007, security and efficiency have been rigorously
evaluated through academic and industrial studies.  As of the
publication of this document, no security vulnerabilities have been
found.  KCipher-2 offers fast encryption and decryption by means of
simple operations that enable efficient implementation.  KCipher-2
has been used for industrial applications, especially for mobile
health monitoring and diagnostic services in Japan.
