In 2002, Moldovyan and Moldovyan introduced a cipher with security based mainly on data-dependent permutations (DDPs) called CIKS–1[1]. The goal of the cipher was to exploit the speed and simplicity of DDPs to create a fast hardware-oriented block cipher. This paper examines the properties of DDPs. In particular, it is noted that these structures do not… CONTINUE READING
