Dear Web Crypto Working Group,

KCipher-2 is a fast and lightweight stream cipher developed within the
KDDI R&D Laboratories. It has been standardised by the ISO/IEC and
recommended by the Japanese government (see links at
http://anirbanbasu.github.io/w3c-web-crypto/). We wish to standardise
KCipher-2 as a cipher available within the Web Crypto API.

We request feedback from the Web Crypto group on this document:

You could either submit your comments as Github issues at
https://github.com/anirbanbasu/w3c-web-crypto or send them by email to

Please note that I am new to writing the algorithm specification in the
W3C recommended structure, so it would be great if you could point out
any oversights of non-conformance. I am also aware of the 78 warning
messages that Respec raises on the Working Draft document. My
understanding is that if/when accepted, the main content of this draft
will be included within the Web Crypto API specification as a new
algorithm. Thus, the missing references will be automatically fixed
then. Please do correct me if I am wrong, and if this KCipher-2 draft is
expected to be a standalone document on its own.

Thank you for your time.

Best regards,

Anirban Basu, Ph.D.
