Re: A poorman's block encryption algorithm

If you are prepared to move away from block cyphers to a stream cypher

If I don't err, stream ciphers have difficulties in issues of
authentication. That's why I considered block encryption. (Note in this
respect that the scheme depicted allows large block sizes.)
