Multilinear Galois Mode (MGM) is an Authenticated Encryption with
Associated Data (AEAD) block cipher mode based on the
Encrypt-then-MAC (EtM) principle. MGM is defined for use with 64-bit
and 128-bit block ciphers. 

MGM has been standardized in Russia. It is used as an AEAD mode for
the GOST block cipher algorithms in many protocols, e.g., TLS 1.3 and
IPsec. This document provides a reference for MGM to enable review of
the mechanisms in use and to make MGM available for use with any
block cipher.
