One general class of attacks on stream ciphers is correlation attacks. Most of previous results regarding performance of correlation attacks have been based entirely on simulations. In this paper, we use random coding bounds for convolutional codes to give a theoretical analysis of a previously proposed correlation attack based on convolutional codes. The results from the theoretical derivation are verified by simulations.
