Title: Recommendation for Block Cipher Modes of Operation: The CCM Mode for Authentication and Confidentiality [including updates through 7/20/2007]
Published: May 01, 2004
Abstract: This Recommendation defines a mode of operation, called Counter with Cipher Block Chaining-Message Authentication Code (CCM), for a symmetric key block cipher algorithm. CCM may be used to provide assurance of the confidentiality and the authenticity of computer data by combining the techniques of the Counter (CTR) mode and the Cipher Block Chaining-Message Authentication Code (CBC-MAC) algorithm.
