Lightweight cryptography is a novel diversion from conventional cryptography to minimise its high level of resource requirements, thus it would impeccably fit in the internet-of-things (IoT) environment. The IoT platform is constrained in terms of physical size, internal capacity, other storage allocations like RAM/ROM and data rates. The devices are often battery powered, hence maintenance of the charged energy at least for a few years is essential. However, provision of sufficient security is…
