  • Recently, the U.S National Security Agency has published the specications of two families of lightweight block ciphers, SIMON and SPECK, on ePrint (2). The ciphers are developed with optimization towards both hardware and software in mind. While the spec- ication paper discusses design requirements and performance of the presented lightweight ciphers thoroughly, no security assessment is given. This paper is a move towards lling that cryptanalysis gap for the SIMON family of ciphers. We present… CONTINUE READING
