Differential cryptanalysis is probably the most popular tool for chosen plaintext attacks on block ciphers. It also applies to chosen IV attacks on stream ciphers, but here, high order differential attacks have been surprisingly successful, namely on NLFSR-based constructions. Most approaches have been developed in terms of the algebraic normal form of Boolean functions. Prominent examples are the d-monomial test, cube attacks, and cube testers. We review the various techniques and translate… CONTINUE READING
