Cryptanalysis of LFSR-based Pseudorandom Generators - a Survey

Erik Zenner

Research output: Book/ReportReportResearch


Pseudorandom generators based on linear feedback shift registers (LFSR) are a traditional building block for cryptographic stream ciphers. In this report, we review the general idea for such generators, as well as the most important techniques of cryptanalysis.
