Hummingbird is the latest ultra-lightweight cryptographic algorithm targeted for low cost smart devices. In this paper, the authors design a low power and high speed lightweight cryptographic hummingbird algorithm for hardware environment. The performance of the approach used is determined on XILINX platform using Verilog as hardware description language. They have used Verilog for designing as well as simulation purposes. To verify digital design at the software platform they used ModelSim 6.2b simulator and XILINX 9.2i ISE suite is the synthesis tool used to transform design into digital circuits.
