In the draft Special Publication 800-38C, Recommendation for Block
Cipher Modes of Operation: the CCM Mode for Authentication and
Confidentiality, the CCM mode of the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)
algorithm is specified for the protection of sensitive, unclassified
data. The CCM algorithm combines the counter (CTR) mode for
confidentiality with the cipher block chaining-message authentication
code (CBC-MAC) technique for authentication. Further information on the
development of block cipher modes of operation is available at the modes
home page
