Construction of new S-boxes based on triangle groups and its applications in copyright protection

Substitution boxes with resilient cryptographic possessions are normally utilized in block ciphers to give the substantial property of nonlinearity. They are important to resist standard attacks such as linear and differential cryptanalysis. A cryptographically robust S-box must be sound with respect to cryptographic properties like nonlinearity, bit independent criteria, strict avalanche criteria, linear and differential approximation probability. In this paper, we have developed an innovative construction scheme of nonlinear component of block cipher based on the action of projective linear groups on the projective line, and the permutation triangle groups. This nonlinear component, namely S-box, is responsible for making the relation between plaintext and ciphertext intractable which is one of the most important requirements of any modern block ciphers. By widening the scope of the proposed S-boxes, we have applied these lightweight nonlinear components in watermarking scheme.
