We obtain the fault diameter of k-ary n-cube interconnection networks (also known as n-dimensional k-torus networks). We start by constructing a complete set of node-disjoint paths (i.e., as many paths as the degree) between any two nodes of a k-ary n-cube. Each of the obtained paths is of length zero, two, or four plus the minimum length except for one path in a special case (when the Hamming distance between the two nodes is one) where the increase over the minimum length may attain eight. These results improve those obtained by B. Bose et al. (1995) where the length of some of the paths has a variable increase (which can be arbitrarily large) over the minimum length. These results are then used to derive the fault diameter of the k-ary n-cube, which is shown to be Δ+1 where Δ is the fault free diameter
