[01-04-2019] Authenticated encryption

With growing dependency on information technology and more at stake, the security aspect has become more vital than ever. Within this context acts authenticated encryption(AE) as a shared-key based transform whose goal is to provide secrecy, Integrity and authenticity of the encapsulated data [MB07]. AE combines traditional Symmetric Encryption (SE) with a Message Authentication Code (MAC) in different orders [CNS14]. This article introduces the different combinations of authenticated encryption and their applications.
