eSTREAM is a project to “identify new stream ciphers suitable for widespread adoption”, organised by the EU ECRYPT network. It was set up as a result of the . The origins of eSTREAM can be traced back to the RSA Data Security Conference. There, as part of the Cryptographer’s Panel, Adi Shamir made some . eSTREAM: the ECRYPT Stream Cipher Project. Requirements. Submissions to eSTREAM were required to fit into at least one of the following two profiles.

Activities in Phase 1 included a large amount of analysis and presentations of analysis results as well as discussion. Please improve this by adding secondary or tertiary sources. The project was completed in April esream The Focus 2 candidates will be re-classified every six months.

The selected Profile 2 algorithms were: By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Symmetric-key algorithm Block cipher Stream cipher Public-key cryptography Cryptographic hash function Message authentication code Random numbers Steganography. The project was divided into separate phases and the project goal was to find algorithms suitable for different application profiles. Eli Biham and Jennifer Seberry. Cryptography contests Research projects Stream ciphers.


For each of the profiles, a number of algorithms has been selected to be Focus Phase 2 algorithms. The project also developed a framework for testing the performance of the candidates. This page was last edited on 7 Aprilat History of cryptography Cryptanalysis Outline of cryptography.

Retrieved 2 April This article relies too much on references to primary sources. The designs were scrutinized based on criteria of security, performance with respect to the block cipher AES — a US Government approved standard, as well as the other candidatessimplicity and flexibility, justification and supporting analysis, and clarity and completeness of the documentation.

Submissions in Profile 1 were only accepted if they demonstrated software performance superior to AES in counter mode. This cipher was in the original portfolio, but was removed in revision 1, published in September The selected Profile 1 algorithms were: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

These are all free for any use. The call for primitives was first issued in November Note that the bit version of Grain v1 is no longer supported by its designers and has been replaced by Graina.

On 1 AugustPhase 2 was officially started. Archived from the original pdf on 18 October The framework was then used to benchmark the candidates on a wide variety of systems.

Notes on the ECRYPT Stream Cipher project (eSTREAM)

Views Read Edit View history. These are designs that eSTREAM finds of particular interest and encourages more cryptanalysis and performance evaluation on these algorithms. Rabbit was the only one that had a patent pending during the eStream competition, but it was released into the public domain in October Phase 1 included a general analysis of all submissions with the purpose of selecting a subset of the submitted designs for further scrutiny. In Phase sstream none of the ciphers providing authentication are being considered The NLS cipher had authentication removed from it to improve its performance.

Both profiles contain an “A” subcategory peoject and 2A with ciphers that also provide authentication esream addition to encryption. April Learn how and when to remove this template message. Additionally a number of algorithms for each profile are accepted as Phase 2 algorithms, meaning that they are still valid as eSTREAM candidates.
