Title: Recommendation for Block Cipher Modes of Operation: The CMAC Mode for Authentication
Published: May 01, 2005
Abstract: This Recommendation specifies a message authentication code (MAC) algorithm based on a symmetric key block cipher. This block cipher-based MAC algorithm, called CMAC, may be used to provide assurance of the authenticity, and, hence, the integrity, of binary data.
