The security protocols used in ZigBee and Wi-Fi networks rely on stream cipher algorithms, like RC4 (Used in WEP and WPA) or AES-CTR (in WPA2), to encrypt data before transmission. RC4 is a fast algorithm, but represents some major flaws. AES is a very robust algorithm, but it is time consuming. For some industrial and medical applications, these algorithms don't respect the real-time and robustness requirements at the same time. Therefore, new fast stream ciphers where proposed in the eStream… CONTINUE READING
