The 128-bit block ciphers, AES, Camellia, and SEED, are the only ciphers adopted as the next generation standard.
The Japanese ciphers Camellia (128-bit block cipher by NTT/Mitsubishi), MISTY1 (64-bit block cipher by Mitsubishi), and PSEC-KEM (Public key encryption by NTT) were selected.
Camellia is a 128-bit block Cipher (allowing key sizes of 128, 192, and 256 bits), which was jointly developed in 2000 by NTT and Mitsubishi.

Roulston said Ciphers would focus on improving operations at American Stone's Cleveland Quarries operation through lean manufacturing and continuous improvement techniques and through more focused sales and marketing efforts.
We have a good team of people here at Cleveland Quarries, and I believe we have a good opportunity for significant growth and profitability," said Ciphers.
Compared with brute-force attack, these can break certain block ciphers with fewer computing resources.
It was developed by NTT and Mitsubishi using NTT's cipher design technologies geared to high speed software implementation, Mitsubishi's cipher design technologies for compact and high-speed hardware implementation, and state-of-the-art security evaluation technologies of both companies.
