Abstract

Fast correlation attacks have considerably evolved since their first appearance. They have lead to new design criteria of stream ciphers, and have found applications in other areas of communications and cryptography.

In this paper, a review of the development of fast correlation attacks and their implications on the design of stream ciphers over the past two decades is given.
