This paper provides theoretical foundation and quantitative efficiency analysis to cycle-walking, which is an approach that makes sure ciphertext falls in the acceptable range. On consistency, cycle-walking must eventually arrive back with finite iteration rounds and its decryption reverses encryption. On security, cycle-walking would not degrade the security of underlying ciphers. On efficiency, we draw a conclusion that the average iteration rounds for cycle-walking is nearly inline image, where inline image, n is the domain size and k is the number of binary input subblocks in the combined Feistel network.
