XOR is an algorithm for a particular kind of symmetric encryption. XOR, or eXclusive OR, is a two-input boolean logic gate with the following truth table:

<pre>A B O0 0 00 1 11 0 11 1 0</pre>

That is to say, output is true when either A is true or B is true but NOT both or neither. The XOR function can be contrast with IOR. This metric is used by the KADEMLIA project.
