A Survey of Cryptanalytic Attacks on Lightweight Block Ciphers
Lightweight block ciphers are used in applications where low power consumption is a requirement along with hardware area constraints regarding their implementation. Design of these ciphers demands an optimal tradeoff between computational efficiency and security. These ciphers being supportive in fast and secure transmission of data from one location to another are prone to several attacks that need to be identified and analyzed before deployment. This paper focuses on describing and categorizing all recent attacks in accordance to various lightweight block ciphers available to one.
