I understand your suggestion.
The paper has a section called, "Key-alternating block ciphers".
The paper distinguishes this from "Iterative block cipher".
The paper gave formulations for the same.
I may have incorrectly assumed that the first was the strategy used in AES?
I made a strong attempt [and an a priori language apology]
to use the main keywords read in the paper.
But, I understand, and will indeed try to take you general advice anyway.
I mean it's generally good advice.

Um look at the AES design carefully, you do a "AddRoundKey" before you
start the loop of rounds. So the data is "keyed" before you even get
into the unkeyed parts of the first round.
addroundkeyAnd this one may be a key dependant scrambling round similar
to what DES uses in every round?
AddRoundKey is *NOT A ROUND* it's a function that is PART OF the AES
Both AES and DES take your secret key and stretch it with a key
schedule algorithm [AES and DES use different algorithms] to make the
In the case of AES the key is added to the block, in the case of DES
it's added to the input to the Feistel round function.
Together, "key-alternating" round strategy?
Again, you lost me. Stop making up terms.
IF YOU DIDN'T READ IT IN A PAPER OR BOOK THEN IT'S PROBABLY NOT A
CRYPTOGRAPHIC TERM SO DON'T USE IT.
It's really that simple.
I suggest you learn how one works then the other. Stop trying to
compare what AES does to DES. DES is a balanced Feistel, AES is a
substitution permutation network. They work differently.
If you really want to compare DES to another cipher compare it to CAST5
or Twofish or something. But I highly suggest you focus on DES *AND
