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.

Rabbit was the only one that had a patent pending during the eStream competition, but it was released into the public peoject in October Activities in Phase 1 included a large amount of analysis and presentations of analysis results as well as discussion. Phase 1 included a general analysis of all submissions with the purpose of selecting a subset poject the submitted designs for further scrutiny.

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. These are all free for any use.

In Phase 3 none of the ciphers providing authentication are being considered The Projeect cipher had authentication removed from it to improve its performance.

The project was divided into separate phases and the project goal was to find algorithms suitable for different application profiles. For each of the profiles, a number of algorithms has been selected to be Focus Phase 2 algorithms.

Notes on the ECRYPT Stream Cipher project (eSTREAM)

Note that the bit version of Grain v1 is no longer supported by its designers and has been replaced by Graina. Submissions in Profile 1 were only accepted if they demonstrated software performance superior to AES in counter mode. This article relies too much on references to primary sources.

The Focus 2 candidates will be re-classified every six months. Please improve this by adding secondary or tertiary sources.

The selected Profile 2 algorithms were: The call for primitives was first issued in November 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 estreak these algorithms.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. On 1 AugustPhase 2 was officially started. The framework was then used to benchmark the candidates on a wide variety of systems. This cipher was in the original portfolio, but was removed in revision 1, published in September Both profiles contain an “A” subcategory 1A and 2A with ciphers that also provide authentication in addition to encryption. The project was completed in April The selected Profile 1 algorithms were:
