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.

Crypto competitions: eSTREAM: the ECRYPT Stream Cipher Project

This cipher was in the original portfolio, but was removed in revision 1, published in September Activities in Phase 1 included a large amount of analysis and presentations of analysis results as well as discussion. The selected Profile 2 algorithms were: Cryptography contests Research projects Stream ciphers.


In Phase 3 none of the ciphers providing authentication are being considered The NLS cipher had authentication removed from it to improve its performance. The Focus 2 candidates will be re-classified every six months. Retrieved 23 March 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.

RC4 block ciphers in stream mode ChaCha. The framework was then used to benchmark the candidates on a wide variety of systems. This article relies too much on references to primary sources. Phase 1 included a general analysis of all submissions with the purpose of selecting a subset of the submitted designs for further scrutiny.

The project was divided into separate phases and the project goal was to find algorithms estreeam for different application profiles. Additionally a number of algorithms for each profile are accepted as Phase 2 algorithms, meaning that they are still valid as eSTREAM candidates. Rabbit was the only one that had a patent pending during the eStream competition, but it was released into the public domain in October The project also developed a framework for testing the performance of the candidates.

Notes on the ECRYPT Stream Cipher project (eSTREAM)

Eli Biham and Jennifer Seberry. Submissions in Profile 1 were only accepted if they demonstrated software performance superior to AES in counter mode.

On 1 ExtreamPhase 2 was officially started. These are all free for any use. Retrieved from ” https: Please improve this by adding secondary or tertiary sources. For each of the profiles, a number rpoject algorithms has been selected to be Focus Phase 2 algorithms. The project was completed in April Note that the bit version of Grain v1 is no longer supported by its designers and has been replaced by Graina. April Learn how and when to remove this template message.

These are designs that eSTREAM finds of particular interest and encourages more cryptanalysis and performance evaluation on these algorithms. The selected Profile 1 algorithms were: Archived from the original pdf on 18 October The call for primitives was first issued in November
