One Software Tool for Testing Square S-Boxes

Free registration required

Executive Summary

An encryption technique is widely used to keep data confidential. Most of the block symmetric algorithms use substitution functions. Often this functions use so called S-BOX matrix. In this paper author presents one software tool for testing and measuring square s-boxes. Based on information theory functions for testing static and dynamic criteria are presented. These criterions are mathematically defined for square s-boxes. Two new criteria "Private criteria" a proposed and pseudo codes for the creation and testing are presented.
