Block cipher modes of operation are algorithms that use a block cipher to provide information security such as confidentiality or authenticity. They allow for the secure transformation of data larger than one block, and require an initialization vector for each encryption operation. Authenticated encryption modes combine confidentiality and authenticity in an efficient way.
