Is there a usable implementation of the eSTREAM stream cyphers available for Linux?
I was thinking to use that for encrypting data stored on tape drives, using it with
Now, there are some basic implementations in the eSTREAM suite, but they're designed for benchmarking purposes, and are not very usable for every-day use.
I rely on stream cipher RC4 right now (
openssl rc4), but as with DES and AES, I'd like to switch to something more secure, and more modern.
In case there are "better" ways of using encryption on tape drives, please let me know. Block ciphers are obviously not really handy here, since those require random access.
