I was just thinking that myself. Sorry I got your nick wrong by the way. I am a huge fan of Mr. Schneier and agree with most of his assesments. So to see him in person will be a treat. Especially if I can get work to spring for the conference fee.
I actually went with the questions that were posed by you guys and sent them to Bruce. Normally I just do them up myself, but felt it important that you guys have the ability to give input. The interview will be up on the site this Sunday 15 Jan '06.
The upcoming IEEE standard for Tweakable Narrow Block Encryption to my knowledge only deals with LRW-AES.
Recently, LRW seems to be applied by some accross the board for all ciphers instead of CBC. Can any comments be made as to the desirability of LRW for ciphers other than AES?
Should LRW-AES be considered as the 'best' at present time with regard to attacks?
LRW mode (as any other decent mode of operation) just needs a secure block cipher. It does not matter which cipher it is, as long as the cipher is secure (the proof is very simple). However, regardless of mode of operation, AES-256 is arguably the most reasonable choice today.
