Efficient Hardware Design and Implementation of AES Cryptosystem
The authors propose an efficient hardware architecture design & implementation of Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)-Rijndael cryptosystem. The AES algorithm defined by the National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) of United States has been widely accepted. The cryptographic algorithms can be implemented with software or built with pure hardware. However, Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) implementation offers quicker solution and can be easily upgraded to incorporate any protocol changes. This contribution investigates the AES encryption and decryption cryptosystem with regard to FPGA and Very High Speed Integrated Circuit Hardware Description Language (VHDL).
