This paper explores the design and strength of a feasible electronic ciphermachine that might have been invented in the 1970’s. The design uses linear feedback shift registers, to get a key generator that satisfies some necessary requirements for a secure cryptographic algorithm. The analysis of the strength however, shows that the algorithm can be attacked successfully.
