4 General Statements
4.1. The structure model of the cryptographic transformation
algorithm (a cryptographic model) contains:
 a 256 bit key data store (KDS) consisting of eight 32bit
registers (X0, X1, X2, X3, X4, X5, X6, X7);
 four 32bit registers (N1, N2, N3, N4);
 two 32bit registers (N5, N6) containing constants C2, C1;
 two 32bit adders modulo 2^32 (CM1, CM3);
 a 32bit adder of bitwise sums modulo 2 (CM2);
 a 32bit adder modulo (2^321) (CM4);
 an adder modulo 2 (CM5), with no limitation to its
width;
 a substitution box (K);
 a register for a cyclic shift of 11 steps to the top digit (R).
4.2. A substitution box (Sbox) K consists of eight substitution points
K1, K2, K3, K4, K5, K6, K7, K8, with 64 bit memory. A 32bit
vector coming to the substitution box is divided into eight
successive 4bit vectors, and each of them is transformed into a
4bit vector by a corresponding substitution point. A substitution
point is a table consisting of 16 lines, each containing 4 bits.
The incoming vector defines the line address in the table, and the
contents of that line is the outgoing vector. Then these 4bit
outgoing vectors are successively combined into a 32bit vector.
Remark: the standard doesn't define any Sboxes. Some of them are
defined in [RFC4357].
4.3. When adding and cyclically shifting binary vectors, the registers
with larger numbers are considered the top digits.
4.4. When writing a key (W1, W2, ..., W256), Wq = 0..1, q = 1..256,
in the KDS the value W1 is written into the 1st bit of the register
X0, the value W2 is written into the 2nd bit of the register X0,
..., the value W32 is written into the 32nd bit of the register X0;
the value W33 is written into the 1st bit of the register X1, the
value W34 is written into the 2nd bit of the register X1, ..., the
value W64 is written into the 32nd bit of the register X1; the
V.Dolmatov Expires June 21, 2010 [Page 4]
value W65 is written into the 1st bit of the register X2 etc.; the
value W256 is written into the 32nd bit of the register X7.
4.5. When rewriting the information, the value of pth bit of one
register (adder) is written into the pth bit of another register
(adder).
4.6. The values of the constants C1, C2 in the registers N5 and
N6 are in the Appendix 1.
4.7. The keys defining fillings of KDS and the substitution box K tables
are secret elements and are provided in accordance with the
established procedure.
The filling of the substitution box K is described in GOST 2814789
as a longterm key element common for a whole computer network.
Usually K is used as a parameter of algorithm, some possible sets
of K are described in [RFC4357].
4.8 The cryptographic model contemplates four working modes:
 data encryption (decryption) in the electronic codebook (ECB) mode;
 data encryption (decryption) in the counter (CNT) mode;
 data encryption (decryption) in the cipher feedback (CFB) mode;
 the MAC generation mode.
[RFC4357] describes also the CBC mode of GOST 2814789, but this mode
is not a part of the standard.
5. The Electronic Codebook Mode
5.1. Encryption of plain text in the electronic codebook mode
5.1.1. The plain text to be encrypted is split into 64bit blocks.
Input of a binary data block Tp = (a1(0), a2(0), ... , a31(0),
a32(0), b1(0), b2(0), ..., b32(0)) into the registers N1 and N2 is
done so that the value of a1(0) is put into the first bit of N1, the
value of a2(0) is put into the second bit of N1 etc., and the value
of a32(0) is put into the 32nd bit of N1. The value of b1(0) is put
into the first bit of N2, the value of b2(0) is put into the 2_nd bit
of N2 etc., and the value of b32(0) is input into the 32nd bit of N2.
The result is the state (a32(0), a31(0), ..., a2(0), a1(0)) of the
register N1 and the state (b32(0), b31(0), ..., b1(0)) of the
register N2.
5.1.2. The 256 bits of the key are entered into the KDS. The
contents of eight 32bit registers X0, X1, ..., X7 are:
V.Dolmatov Expires June 21, 2010 [Page 5]
X0 = W32, W31, ... , W2, W1
X1 = W64, W63, ... , W34, W33
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
X7 = W256, W255 ..., W226, W225
5.1.3. The algorithm for enciphering 64bit blocks of plain text in
the electronic codebook mode consists of 32 rounds.
In the first round the initial value of register N1 is added
modulo 2^32 in the adder CM1 to the contents of the register X0.
Note: the value of register N1 is unchanged.
The result of the addition is transformed in the substitution block
K, and the resulting vector is put into the register R, where it is
cyclically shifted by 11 steps towards the top digit. The result of
this shift is added bitwise modulo 2 in the adder CM2 to the 32bit
contents of the register N2. The result produced in CM2 is then
written into N1, and the old contents of N1 are written in N2.
Thus the first round ends.
The subsequent rounds are similar to the first one: in the second
round the contents of X1 is read from the KDS, in the third round
the contents of X2 are read from the KDS etc., in the 8th round the
contents of X7 are read from the KDS. In the rounds 9 through 16 and
17 through 24 the contents of the KDS are read in the same order:
X0, X1, X2, X3, X4, X5, X6, X7.
In the last eight rounds from the 25th to the 32nd the contents of
the KDS are read backwards:
X7, X6, X5, X4, X3, X2, X1, X0.
Thus, during the 32 rounds of encryption, the following order of
choosing the registers' contents is implemented:
X0, X1, X2, X3, X4, X5, X6, X7, X0, X1, X2, X3, X4, X5, X6, X7,
X0, X1, X2, X3, X4, X5, X6, X7, X7, X6, X5, X4, X3, X2, X1, X0
In the 32nd round the result in the adder CM2 is written into the
register N2, and the old contents of register N1 are unchanged.
The contents of the registers N1 and N2 after the 32nd round are an
encrypted data block corresponding to a block of plain text.
V.Dolmatov Expires June 21, 2010 [Page 6]
5.1.4. The equations for enciphering in the electronic codebook mode
are:
a(j) = (a(j1) [+] X(j1)(mod 8))*K*R (+) b (j1)
 j = 1..24;
b(j) = a(j1)
a(j) = (a(j1) [+] X(32j))*K*R (+) b(j1)
 j = 25..31; a32 = a31;
b(j) = a(j1)
b(32) = (a(31) [+] X0)*K*R (+) b(31) j=32,
where a(0) = (a32(0), a31(0), ..., a1(0)) is the initial contents of
N1 before the first round of encryption;
b(0) = (b32(0), b31(0), ..., b1(0)) is the initial contents of N2
before the first round of encryption;
a(j) = (a32(j), a31(j), ..., a1(j)) is the contents of N1 after the
jth round of encryption;
b(j) = (b32(j), b31(j), ..., b1(j)) is the contents of N2 after the
j^th round of encryption, j = 1..32.
R is the operation of cyclic shift towards the top digit by 11 steps,
as follows:
R(r32, r31, r30, r29, r28, r27, r26, r25, r24, r23, r22, r21, r20,
..., r2, r1) =
(r21, r20, ..., r2, r1, r32, r31, r30, r29, r28, r27, r26, r25,
r24, r23, r22)
5.1.5. The 64bit block of ciphertext Tc is taken out of the
registers N1, N2 in the following order:
the first, second, ..., 32nd bit of the register N1, then the first,
second, . .., 32nd bit of the register N2, i.e.,
Tc = a1(32), a2(32), ..., a32(32), b1(32), b2(32), ..., b32(32)).
The remaining blocks of the plain text in electronic codebook mode
are encrypted in the same fashion.
5.2. Decryption of the ciphertext in the electronic codebook mode
5.2.1 The same 256bit key that was used for encryption is loaded
into the KDS, the encrypted data to be deciphered is divided into
64bit blocks. The loading of any binary information block
Tc = (a1(32), a2(32), ..., a32(32), b1(32), b2(32), ..., b32(32))
V.Dolmatov Expires June 21, 2010 [Page 7]
into the registers N1 and N2 is done in such a way that the contents
of a1(32) are written into the first bit of N1, the contents of
a2(32) are written into the second bit of N1 and so on, the contents
of a32(32) are written into the 32nd bit of N1; the contents of
b1(32) are written into the first bit of N2 and so on, and the
contents of b32(32) are written into the 32nd bit of N2.
5.2.2. The decryption procedure uses the same algorithm as the
encryption of plain text, with one exception: the contents of the
registers X0, X1, ..., X7 are read from the KDS in the decryption
rounds in the following order:
X0,X1,X2,X3,X4,X5,X6,X7, X7,X6,X5,X4,X3,X2,X1,X0,
X7,X6,X5,X4,X3,X2,X1,X0, X7,X6,X5,X4,X3,X2,X1,X0.
5.2.3. The decryption equations are:
a(32j) = (a(32j+1) [+] X(j1))*K*R (+) b(32j+1)
 j = 1..8;
b(321) = a(32j+1)
a(32j) = (a(32j+1) [+] X(j1)(mod 8))*K*R (+) b(32j+1)
 j = 9..31;
b(321) = a(32j+1)
a(0) = a(1)
 j=32.
b(0) = (a(1) [+] X0)*K*R (+) b1
5.2.4 The fillings of the adders N1 and N2 after 32 working rounds
are a plain text block.
Tp = (a1(0), a2(0), ... , a32(0), b1(0), b2(0), ..., b32(0))
corresponding to the encrypted data block, and the value of a1(0) of
the block Tp corresponds to the contents of the first bit of N1, the
value of a2(0) corresponds to the contents of the second bit of N1
etc., the value of b1(0) corresponds to the contents of the first
bit of N2, the value of b2(0) corresponds to the contents of the
second bit of N2 etc., the value of b32(0) corresponds to the
contents of 32nd bot of N2.
The remaining blocks of encrypted data are decrypted similarly.
5.3. The encryption algorithm in the electronic codebook mode of a
64bit block Tp is denoted by A, that is
A(Tp) is A(a(0), b(0)) = (a(32), b(32)) = Tc.
V.Dolmatov Expires June 21, 2010 [Page 8]
6. The counter encryption mode
6.1. Encryption of plain text in the counter encryption mode
6.1.1 The plain text divided into 64bit blocks Tp(1), Tp(2),
..., Tp(M1), Tp(M) is encrypted in the counter encryption mode
by bitwise addition modulo 2 in the adder CM5 with the running key
Gc produced in 64 bit blocks, that is:
Gc = (Gc(1), Gc(2), ..., Gc(M1), Gc(M))
where M is defined by the size of the plain text being encrypted.
Gc(i) is the ith 64bit block where i=1..M, the number of bit in
a block Tp(M) can be less than 64, in this case the unused part of
the running key block Gc(M) is discarded.
6.1.2 256 bit of the key are put into the KDS. The registers N1 and
N2 accept a 64bit binary sequence (an initialisation vector) S =
(S1, S2, ..., S64) that is the initial filling of these registers for
subsequent generation of M blocks of the running key. The
initialisation vector is put into the registers N1 and N2 so as the
value of S1 is written into the first bit of N1, the value of S2 is
written into the second bit of N1 etc., the value of S32 is written
into the 32nd bit of N1; the value of S33 is written into the first
bit of N2, the value of S34 is written into the 33th bit of N2, etc.,
the value of S64 is written into the 32nd bit of N2.
6.1.3 The initial filling of the registers N1 and and N2 (the
initialisation vector S) is encrypted in the electronic codebook mode
in accordance with the requirements from section 5.1. The result of
that encryption A(S) = (Y0, Z0) is rewritten into the 32bit
registers N3 and N4 so as the contents of N1 are written into N3, and
the contents of N2 are written into N4.
6.1.4 The filling of the register N4 is added modulo (2^321) in the
adder CM4 to the 32bit constant C1 from the register N6, the result
is written into N4. The filling of the register N3 is added modulo
2^32 in the adder CM3 with the 32bit constant C2 from the register
N5, the result is written into N3.
The filling of N3 is copied into N1, and the filling of N4 is
copied into N2, while the fillings of N3 and N4 are kept.
The filling of N1 and N2 is encrypted in the electronic codebook mode
according to the requirements of the section 5.1. The resulting
encrypted filling of N1 and N2 is the first 64bit block of the
running key Gc(1), this block is bitwise added modulo 2 in the adder
CM5 with the first 64bit block of the plain text:
Tp(1) = (t1(1), t2(1), ..., t63(1), t64(1)).
The result of this addition is a 64bit block of the encrypted data
Tc(1) = (tau1(1), tau2(1), ..., tau63(1), tau64(1)).
V.Dolmatov Expires June 21, 2010 [Page 9]
The value of tau1(1) of the block Tc(1) is the result of addition
modulo 2 in the CM5 the value t1(1) of the block Tp(1) to the value
of the first bit of N1, the value of tau2(1) of the block Tc(1) is
the result of addition modulo 2 in the CM5 the value of t2(1) from
the block Tp(1) to the value of the second bit of N1 etc., the value
of tau64(1) of the block Tc(1) is the result of addition modulo 2 in
the CM5 of the value t64(1) of the block Tp(1) to the value of the
32nd bit of N2.
6.1.5 To get the next 64bit block of the running key Gc(2) the
filling of N4 is added modulo (2^321) in the adder CM4 with the
constant C1 from N6, the filling of N3 is added modulo 2^32 in the
adder CM3 with the constant C2 from N5. The new filling of N3 is
copied into N1, the new filling of N4 is copied into N2, while the
fillings of N3 and N4 are kept.
The filling of N1 and N2 is encrypted in the electronic codebook mode
according to the requirements of the section 5.1. The resulting
encrypted filling of N1 and N2 is the second 64bit block of the
running key Gc(2), this block is bitwise added modulo 2 in the adder
CM5 with the first 64bit block of the plain text Tp(2). The
remaining running key blocks Gc(3), Gc(4), ..., Gc(M) are generated
and the plain text blocks Tp(3), Tp(4), ..., Tp(M) are encrypted
similarly. If the length of the last Mth block of the plain text is
less than 64 bit then only the corresponding number of bit from the
last Mth block of the running key is uses, remaining bit are
discarded.
6.1.6 The initialisation vector S and the blocks of encrypted data
Tc(1), Tc(2), ..., Tc(M) are transmitted to the telecommunication
channel or to the computer memory.
6.1.7 The encryption equation is:
Tc(i) = A(Y[i1] [+] C2, Z[i1]) [+]' C1) (+) Tp(i)
= Gc(i) (+) Tp(i) i=1..M
where:
Y[i] is the contents of the register N3 after encrypting the
ith block of the plain text Tp(i);
Z(i) is the contents of the register N4 after encrypting the
ith block of the plain text Tp(i);
(Y[0], Z[0]) = A(S).
V.Dolmatov Expires June 21, 2010 [Page 10]
6.2. Decryption of ciphertext in the counter encryption mode
6.2.1 256 bit of the key that was used for encrypting the data Tp(1),
Tp(2), ..., Tp(M) are put into the KDS. The initialisation vector S
is put into the registers N1 and N2 and, like in the sections 6.1.2 
6.1.5 M blocks of the running key Gc(1), Gc(2), ..., Gc(M) are
generated. The encrypted data blocks Tc(1), Tc(2), ..., Tc(M) are
added bitwise modulo 2 in the adder CM5 with the blocks of the
running key, and this results in the blocks of plain text Tp(1),
Tp(2), ..., Tp(M), and Tp(M) may contain less than 64 bit.
6.2.2 The decryption equation is:
Tp(i) = A (Y[i1] [+] C2, Z[i1] [+]' C1) (+) Tc(i)
= Gc(i) (+) Tc(i) i = 1..M
7. The cipher feedback mode
7.1. Encryption of plain text in the cipher feedback mode
7.1.1 The plain text is divided into 64bit blocks Tp(1), Tp(2), ...,
Tp(M) and encrypted in the cipher feedback mode by bitwise addition
modulo 2 in the adder CM5 with the running key Gc generated in 64bit
blocks, i.e. Gc(i)=(Gc(1), Gc(2), ..., Gc(M)), where M is defined by
___
the length of the plain text, Gc(i) is the ith 64bit block, i=1,M.
The number of bits in the block Tp(M) may be less than 64.
7.1.2 256 bit of key are put into the KDS. The 64bit initialisation
vector S = (S1, S2, ... S64) is put into N1 and N2 as described in
the section 6.1.2.
7.1.3 The initial filling of N1 and N2 is encrypted in the electronic
codebook mode in accordance with the requirements in section 6.1. The
resulting encrypted filling N1 and N2 is the first 64bit block of
the running key Gc(1)=A(S), then this block is added bitwise modulo 2
with the first 64bit block of plain text Tp(1) = (t1(1), t2(1), ...,
t64(1)).
The result is 64bit block of encrypted data
Tc(1) = (tau1(1), tau2(1), ..., tau64(1)).
7.1.4 The block of encrypted data Tc(1) is simultaneously the initial
state of N1 and N2 for generating the second block of the running key
Gc(2) and is written on feedback in these registers. Here the value
of tau1(1) is written into the first bit of N1, the value of tau2(1)
is written into the second bit of N1, etc., the value of tau32(1) is
written into the 32nd bit of N1; the value of tau33(1) is written
into the first bit of N2, the value of tau34(1) is written into the
second bit of N2 etc., the value of tau64(1) is written into the 32nd
bit of N2.
V.Dolmatov Expires June 21, 2010 [Page 11]
The filling of N1, N2 is encrypted in the electronic codebook mode in
accordance with the requirements in the section 6.1. The encrypted
filling N1, N2 makes the second 64bit block of the running key
Gc(2), this block is added bitwise modulo 2 in the adder CM5 to the
second block of the plain text Tp(2).
The generation of subsequent blocks of the running key Gc(i) and the
encryption of the corresponding blocks of the plain text Tp(i)
(i = 3..M) is performed similarly. If the length of the last Mth
block of the plain text is less than 64 bit, only the corresponding
number of bits of the Mth block of the running key Gc(M) is used,
remaining bits are discarded.
7.1.5. The encryption equations in the cipher feedback mode are:
Tc(1) = A(S) (+) Tp(1) = Gc(1) (+) Tp(1)

Tc(i) = A(Tc(i1)) (+) Tp(i) = Gc(i) + Tp(i), i = 2..M.
7.1.6 The initialisation vector S and the blocks of encrypted data
Tc(1), Tc(2), ..., Tc(M) are transmitted into the telecommunication
channel or to the computer memory.
7.2. Decryption of ciphertext in the cipher feedback mode
7.2.1 256 bits of the key used for the encryption of Tp(1), Tp(2),
..., Tp(M) are put into the KDS. The initialisation vector S is put
into N1 and N2 similarly to 6.1.2.
7.2.2 The initial filling of N1, N2 (the initialisation vector S) is
encrypted in the electronic codebook mode in accordance with the
subsection 6.1. The encrypted filling of N1, N2 is the first block of
the running key Gc(1) = A(S), this block is added bitwise modulo 2 in
the adder CM5 with the encrypted data block Tc(1). This results in
the first block of plain text Tp(1).
7.2.3 The block of encrypted data Tc(1) makes the initial filling of
N1, N2 for generating the second block of the running key Gc(2). The
block Tc(1) is written in N1 and N2 in accordance with the
requirements in the subsection 6.1, the resulted block Gc(2) is
added bitwise modulo 2 in the adder CM5 to the second block of the
encrypted data Tc(2). This results in the block of plain text Tc(2).
Similarly, the blocks of encrypted data Tc(2), Tc(3), ..., Tc(M1)
are written in N1, N2 successively, and the blocks of the running key
Gc(3), Gc(4), ..., Gc(M) are generated out of them in the electronic
codebook mode. The blocks of the running key are added bitwise modulo
2 in the adder CM5 to the blocks of the encrypted data Tc(3), Tc(4),
..., Tc(M), this results in the blocks of plain text Tp(3), Tp(4),
..., Tp(M), here the number of bits in the last block of the plain
text Tp(M) can be less than 64 bit.

7.2.4. The decryption equations in the cipher feedback mode are:
Tp(1) = A(S) (+) Tc(1) = Gc(1) (+) Tc(1)

Tp(1) = A(Tc(i1)) (+) Tc(i) = Gc(i) (+) Tc(i), i=2..M
8. Message authentication code (MAC) generation mode
8.1. To provide the protection from falsification of plain text
consisting of M 64bit blocks Tp(1), Tp(2), ..., Tp(M), M >= 2, an
additional lbit block is generated (the message authentication
code I(l)). The process of MAC generation is the same for all the
encryption/decryption modes.
8.2. The first block of plain text
Tp(1) = (t1(1), t1(2), ..., t64(1)) = (a1(1)[0], a2(1)[0], ...,
a32(1)[0], b1(1)[0], b2(1)[0], ..., b32(1)[0])
is written to the registers N1 and N2, the value of t1(1) = a1(1)[0]
is written into the first bit of N1, the value of t2(1) = a2(1)[0] is
written into the second bit of N1, etc., the value of t32(1) =
a32(1)[0] is written into the 32nd bit of N1; the value of t33(1) =
b1(1)[0] is written into the first bit of N2 etc., the value of
t64(1) = b32(1)[0] is written into the 32nd bit of N2.
8.3. The filling of N1 and N2 is transformed in accordance with the
first 16 rounds of the encryption algorithm in the electronic
codebook mode (see the subsection 6.1). In the KDS there's the same
key that is used for encrypting the blocks of plain text Tp(1),
Tp(2), ..., Tp(M) in the corresponding blocks of encrypted data
Tc(1), Tc(2), ..., Tc(M).
The filling of N1 and N2 after the 16 working rounds, looking like
(a1(1)[16], a2(1)[16], ..., a32(1)[16], b1(1)[16], b2(1)[16], ...,
b32(1)[16]), is added in CM5 modulo 2 to the second block Tp(2) =
(t1(2), t2(2), ..., t64(2)).
The result of this addition
(a1(1)[16](+)t1(2), a2(1)[16](+)t2(2), ..., a32(1)[16](+)t32(2),
b1(1)[16](+)t33(2), b2(1)[16](+)t34(2), ..., b32(1)[16](+)t64(2))
=
(a1(2)[0], a2(2)[0] ..., a32(2)[0], b1(2)[0], b2(2)[0], ...,
b32(2)[0])
is written into N1 and N2 and is transformed in accordance with the
first 16 rounds of the encryption algorithm in the electronic
codebook mode.

The resulting filling of N1 and N2 is added in the CM5 modulo 2 with
the third block Tp(3) etc., the last block Tp(M) = (t1(M), t2(M),
..., t64(M)), padded if necessary to a complete 64bit block by
zeros, is added in CM5 modulo 2 with the filling N1, N2
(a1(M1)[16], a2(M1)[16], ..., a32(M1)[16], b1(M1)[16],
b2(M1)[16], ..., b32(M1)[16]).
The result of the addition
(a1(M1)[16](+)t1(M), a2(M1)[16](+)t2(M), ..., a32(M1)[16](+)
t32(M), b1(M1)[16](+)t33(M), b2(M1)[16](+)t34(M), ...,
b32(M1)[16](+)t64(M))
=
(a1(M)[0], a2(M)[0] ..., a32(M)[0], b1(M)[0], b2(M)[0], ...,
b32(M)[0])
is written into N1, N2 and encrypted in the electronic codebook mode
after the first 16 rounds of the algorithm's work. Out of the
resulting filling of the registers N1 and N2
(a1(M)[16], a2(M)[16] ..., a32(M)[16], b1(M)[16], b2(M)[16], ...,
b32(M)[16])
an lbit string I(l) (the MAC) is chosen:
I(l) = [a(32l+1)(M)[16], a(32l+2)(M)[16], ..., a32(M)[16]].
The MAC I(l) is transmitted through the telecommunication channel or
to the computer memory attached to the end of the encrypted data,
i.e. Tc(1), Tc(2), ..., Tc(M), I(l).
8.4. The encrypted data Tc(1), Tc(2), ..., Tc(M), when arriving, are
decrypted, out of the resulting plain text blocks Tp(1), Tp(2), ...,
Tp(M), the MAC I'(l) is generated as described in the subsection 5.3
and compared with the MAC I(l) received together with the encrypted
data from the telecommunication channel or from the computer memory.
If the MACs are not equal, the resulting plain text blocks Tp(1),
Tp(2), ..., Tp(M) are considered false.
The MAC I(l) (I'(l)) can be generated either before encryption (after
decryption, respectively) of the whole message, or simultaneously
with the encryption (decryption) in blocks. The first plain text
blocks, used in the MAC generation, can contain service information
(the address section, a time mark, the initialisation vector etc.,)
and they may be unencrypted.
The parameter l value (the bit length of the MAC) is defined by the
actual cryptographic requirements, while considering that the
possibility of imposing false data is 2^l.
