the linear equivalence of key stream generators. This study presents two
simulated annealing algorithms which have been applied to solve this problem.
Both algorithms use genetic operations to modify the candidate solutions.
The performance evaluation is carried out for a set of key stream generators
and the results are compared with the results of applying genetic algorithm
to solve the same problem. The proposed algorithms are able to find the
linear equivalence and more effective than genetic algorithm.]]>Caballero-Gil, P.,2000Cheng, Y.M. L. Li and S.C. Chi,2007Clark, J.A.,2004Clark, J.A. and J.L. Jacob,2004Clark, J.A., J.L. Jacob and S.
