Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is a Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) and categorized as Computer Security Standard. The AES algorithm is a block cipher that can encrypt and decrypt digital information. The AES algorithm is capable of using cryptographic keys of 128, 192 and 256 bits. The Rijndael cipher has been selected as the official Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and it is well suited for hardware. This paper was to present the hardware implementation of Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm.
