We prove that the fast pseudo-Hadamard transform (FPHT) over a finite field has a bounded branch number. We shall demonstrate that the transform has an efficient implementation for various platforms compared to an equal dimension MDS code. We prove that when using a CS-Cipher[3] like construction the weight of any 2R trail is bounded for the case of an 8 ×(More)
In this paper we show how to combine the design concepts of the SQUARE and CS block ciphers to produce a pseudo-random permutation CSQUARE suitable for use in block cipher and hash design with a very high multi-round trail weight. The new design inherits the hardware efficiency of the SQUARE linear transform pattern as well as the efficiency of the fast(More)
