|Title:||Recommendation for Block Cipher Modes of Operation: Galois/Counter Mode (GCM) and GMAC|
|Published:||November 28, 2007|
|Abstract:||This Recommendation specifies the Galois/Counter Mode (GCM), an algorithm for authenticated encryption with associated data, and its specialization, GMAC, for generating a message authentication code (MAC) on data that is not encrypted. GCM and GMAC are modes of operation for an underlying approved symmetric key block cipher.|
