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.

In Phase 3 none of the ciphers providing authentication are being considered The NLS cipher had authentication projevt from it to improve its performance. The selected Profile 2 algorithms were: Additionally a number of algorithms for each profile are accepted as Phase 2 algorithms, meaning that they are still valid as eSTREAM candidates. These are designs that eSTREAM finds of particular interest and encourages more cryptanalysis and performance evaluation on these algorithms.

Both profiles contain an “A” esteam 1A and 2A with ciphers that also provide authentication in addition to encryption. Rabbit was the only one that had a patent pending during the eStream competition, but it was released into the public domain in October Note that the bit version of Grain v1 is no longer supported by its designers and has been replaced by Graina. Activities in Phase 1 included a large amount of analysis and presentations of analysis results as well as discussion.

Views Read Edit View history. The project was divided into separate phases and the project goal was to find algorithms suitable for different application profiles. The designs were scrutinized based on criteria of security, performance with projetc 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. Please improve this by adding secondary or tertiary sources. The Focus prohect candidates will be re-classified every six months.

The framework was then used to benchmark the candidates on a wide oroject of systems. The call for primitives was first issued in November Eli Biham and Jennifer Seberry. Phase 1 edtream a general analysis of all submissions with the purpose of selecting a subset of the submitted designs for further scrutiny.
