  In this paper, we present four low-cost substitution boxes (S-boxes) including two 4-bit S-boxes called S1 and S2 and two 8-bit S-boxes called SB1 and SB2, which are suitable for the development of lightweight block ciphers. The 8-bit SB1 S-box is constructed based on four 4-bit S-boxes, multiplication ...  Read More

  Impossible differential attack is a well-known mean to examine robustness of block ciphers. Using impossible differential cryptanalysis, we analyze security of a family of lightweight block ciphers, named Midori, that are designed considering low energy consumption. Midori state size can be ...  Read More
