Overview:

Counter-mode encryption (“CTR mode”) was introduced by Diffie and Hellman already in 1979.CTR mode has significant efficiency advantages over the standard encryption modes without weakening the security. In particular its tight security has been proven. CTR mode is well suited to operate on a multi-processor machine where blocks can be encrypted in parallel.
