CCM (Counter mode
) is a Block Cipher Mode
that provides Authenticated Encryption
CCM mode is only defined for Block Ciphers with a block length of 128 bits.
The nonce of CCM must be carefully chosen to never be used more than once for a given key. This is because CCM is a derivation of CTR which is effectively a Stream Cipher.
