Implementation of the Galois Counter Mode (GCM).
Works as a wrapper for the cipher implemented by overloading the parent class (BlockCipher16).
This is a so-called authenticated encryption with associated data (AEAD) algorithm, which in addition to encryption also provides message digests.
The operation of GCM is specified in NIST Special Publication 800-38D.
