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.

These are all free for any use. The selected Profile 2 algorithms were: Please improve this by adding secondary or tertiary sources. These are designs that eSTREAM finds of particular interest and encourages more cryptanalysis and performance evaluation on these algorithms.

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. Retrieved 2 April Note that the bit version of Grain v1 is no longer supported by its designers and has been replaced by Graina.

Archived from the original pdf on 18 October The Focus 2 candidates will be re-classified every six months. The project was completed in April Rabbit poject the only one that had a patent pending during the eStream competition, but it lroject released into the public domain in October By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. RC4 block ciphers in stream mode ChaCha. Additionally a number of algorithms for each profile are accepted as Phase 2 algorithms, meaning that they are still valid as eSTREAM candidates.

Activities in Phase projecg included a large amount of analysis and presentations of analysis results as well as discussion. 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 oroject analysis, and clarity and completeness of the documentation.

Cryptographic competitions

The project was divided into separate phases and the project goal was to find algorithms suitable for different application profiles. Both profiles contain an “A” subcategory 1A and 2A with ciphers that also provide authentication in addition to encryption.

On 1 AugustPhase 2 was officially started. Retrieved from ” https: April Learn how and when to remove this template message.

The project also developed a framework for testing the performance of the candidates. In Phase 3 none of the ciphers providing authentication are being considered The NLS cipher had authentication removed from it to improve its performance.

This cipher was in the original portfolio, but was removed in revision 1, published in September This page was last edited on 7 Aprilat The call for primitives was first issued in November The selected Profile 1 algorithms were: Retrieved 23 March The framework was then used to benchmark the candidates on a wide variety of systems. Eli Biham and Jennifer Seberry. For each of the profiles, a number of algorithms has been selected to be Focus Phase 2 algorithms.
