Description: A new version of the stream cipher SNOW. In 2000, the stream cipher SNOW was proposed [{it P. Ekdahl} and {it T. Johansson}, SNOW – a new stream cipher, Proc. 1st NESSIE Workshop, Heverlee, Belgium (2000) brack. A few attacks followed, indicating certain weaknesses in the design. In this paper we propose a new version of SNOW, called SNOW 2.0. The new version of the cipher not only appears to be more secure, but its implementation is also a bit faster.
