\section{SwitchCrypt Case Studies}\label{sec:usecases}
In this section, we provide case studies and empirical results demonstrating the
practical utility of cipher switching. We cover a wide range of situations,
highlighting concerns like configuration convergence, trading off writable
space, meeting latency goals, keeping within an energy budget, etc. We also
demonstrate the utility of both temporal and spatial switching strategies,
exploring the range of conditions under which certain strategies are optimal.
In this section, we provide four case studies and empirical results
demonstrating the practical utility of cipher switching. We cover a wide range
of situations, highlighting concerns like configuration convergence
(\cref{subsecuc4}), trading off security and writable space (\cref{subsecuc2}),
meeting latency goals (\cref{subsecuc3}), keeping within an energy budget
(\cref{subsecuc1}), etc. We also demonstrate the utility of both temporal and
spatial switching strategies, exploring the range of conditions under which
certain strategies are optimal.
