Maximum distance separable (MDS) matrices are widely used in the design of block ciphers. However, it is highly nontrival to find MDS matrices which could be used in practice. This paper focuses on the design of efficient MDS matrices for substitution-permutation networks (SPNs). We provide a new method to construct and count these MDS matrices. Moreover, we identified an interesting class of Cauchy matrices (named compact Cauchy matrices) which has the fewest different entries and is thus more… CONTINUE READING
