- Hitachi has developed two next-generation encryption technologies that are expected to be adopted as international standards. Called MUGI and MULTI-SO1, the new methods are expected to be officially selected as ciphers by the International Organization for Standardization ISO in the middle of 2005. The technologies are based on stream cipher system and feature high processing speed and security. Stream cipher encryption has been used for the Internet and cellular phones. MUGI can process data more than ten times faster than the AES block cipher, adopted by the U.S. government as a multipurpose encryption standard.
