abstract = {
This document describes the RC5 encryption algorithm, a
fast symmetric block cipher suitable for hardware or software implementations.
A novel feature of RC5 is the heavy use of data-dependent
rotations. RC5 has a variable word size, a variable number of rounds, and
a variable-length secret key. The encryption and decryption algorithms
are exceptionally simple.
