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.

Eli Biham and Jennifer Seberry. The project was divided into separate phases and the project goal was to find algorithms suitable for different application profiles. The Focus 2 candidates will be re-classified every six months. RC4 block ciphers in stream mode ChaCha. In Phase 3 none of the ciphers providing authentication are being considered The NLS cipher had authentication removed from it to improve prlject performance.

For each of the profiles, a number of algorithms has been selected to be Focus Phase 2 algorithms. This cipher was in the original portfolio, but was removed in revision 1, published in September History of cryptography Cryptanalysis Outline of cryptography.

Note that the bit version of Grain v1 is no longer supported by its designers and has been replaced by Graina. These are designs that eSTREAM finds of particular interest and encourages more cryptanalysis and performance evaluation on these algorithms.

The call for primitives was first issued in November From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The project was completed in April The project also developed a framework for testing the performance of the candidates. Retrieved from ” https: The framework was then used to benchmark the candidates on a wide variety of systems.


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

Both profiles contain an “A” subcategory 1A and 2A with ciphers that also provide authentication in addition to encryption. Submissions in Profile 1 were only accepted if they demonstrated software performance superior to AES in counter mode. Retrieved 2 April On 1 AugustPhase 2 was officially started. This article relies too much on references to primary sources.

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

Activities in Phase 1 included a large amount of analysis and presentations of analysis results as well as discussion. Additionally a number of algorithms for each profile are accepted as Phase 2 algorithms, meaning that they are still valid as eSTREAM candidates.

Rabbit was the only one that had a patent pending during the eStream competition, but it was released into the public domain in October
