eSTREAM is a project to “identify new stream ciphers suitable for widespread adoption”, organised by the EU ECRYPT network. It was set up as a result of the . The origins of eSTREAM can be traced back to the RSA Data Security Conference. There, as part of the Cryptographer’s Panel, Adi Shamir made some . eSTREAM: the ECRYPT Stream Cipher Project. Requirements. Submissions to eSTREAM were required to fit into at least one of the following two profiles.

The framework was then used to benchmark the candidates on a wide variety of systems.

These are all free for any use. The designs were scrutinized based on criteria of security, performance with respect to the block cipher AES — a US Government prpject standard, as well as the other candidatessimplicity and flexibility, justification and supporting analysis, and clarity and completeness of the documentation.

The project was completed in April From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. RC4 block ciphers in stream mode ChaCha.

In Phase estrem none of the ciphers providing authentication are being considered The NLS cipher had authentication removed from it to improve its performance. Retrieved from ” https: Note that the bit version of Grain v1 is no longer supported by its designers and has been replaced by Graina.

The Focus 2 candidates will be re-classified every six months. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. The selected Profile 1 algorithms were: Activities in Phase 1 included a large amount of analysis and presentations of analysis results as well as discussion.

On 1 August projfct, Phase 2 was officially started. Both profiles contain an “A” subcategory 1A and 2A with ciphers that also provide authentication in addition to encryption.

Eli Biham and Jennifer Seberry. Phase 1 included a general analysis of all submissions with the purpose of selecting a subset of the submitted designs for further scrutiny.

This page was last edited on 7 Aprilat The project was divided into separate phases and the project goal was to find algorithms suitable for different application profiles. Please improve this by adding secondary or tertiary sources.

Submissions in Profile 1 were only accepted if they demonstrated software performance superior to AES in counter mode.

The call for primitives was first issued in November The selected Profile 2 algorithms were: Retrieved 2 April The project also developed a framework for testing the performance of the candidates. For each of the profiles, a number of algorithms has been selected to be Focus Phase 2 algorithms.

These are designs that eSTREAM finds of particular interest and encourages more cryptanalysis and performance evaluation on these algorithms. This cipher was in the original portfolio, but was removed in revision 1, published in September Cryptography contests Research projects Stream ciphers.

Additionally a number of algorithms for each profile are accepted as Phase 2 algorithms, meaning that they are still valid as eSTREAM candidates.
