On design and analysis of a new block cipher

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 1179)

Abstract

In this paper a new secret-key block cipher based on mixing operations of different algebraic groups is proposed. Some cryptographic properties of the cipher are discussed. Differential cryptanalysis of the cipher structure is treated. The results show the mini cipher with 8-bit blocks is resistant to differential attack.
