PKMS2 – Pattern Key, Multi-Segment, Multi-Standard

The PKMS2 SDK is a proprietary software implementation of the PKMS2 symmetric block cipher mode of operation. The PKMS2 SDK is software designed to use cryptography, and employs digital techniques to ensure information security, including confidentiality, integrity and authenticity. The PKMS2 mode is applicable to any data type and any set of symmetric block cipher primitives, such as the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), promulgated by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) or the Aria cipher, published by the Korean Agency for Technology and Standards (KATS).
