eSTREAM is a project to “identify new stream ciphers suitable for widespread adoption”, organised by the EU ECRYPT network. It was set up as a result of the . The origins of eSTREAM can be traced back to the RSA Data Security Conference. There, as part of the Cryptographer’s Panel, Adi Shamir made some . eSTREAM: the ECRYPT Stream Cipher Project. Requirements. Submissions to eSTREAM were required to fit into at least one of the following two profiles.

The project was completed in April The selected Profile 2 algorithms were: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Cryptographic competitions

For each of the profiles, a number of esstream has been selected to be Focus Phase 2 algorithms. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. The project was divided into separate phases and the project goal was to find algorithms suitable for different application profiles.

Phase 1 included a general analysis of all submissions with the purpose of selecting a subset of the submitted designs for further scrutiny. Cryptography contests Research projects Stream ciphers.

These are designs that eSTREAM finds of particular interest and encourages more cryptanalysis and performance evaluation on these algorithms. Please improve this by adding secondary or tertiary sources.


Both profiles contain an “A” subcategory 1A and 2A with ciphers that also provide authentication in addition to encryption. Prject Phase 3 none of the ciphers providing authentication are being considered The NLS cipher had authentication removed from it to improve its performance.

The designs were scrutinized based on criteria of security, performance with respect to the block cipher AES — a US Government approved standard, as well as the other candidatessimplicity and flexibility, justification and supporting analysis, pproject clarity and completeness of the documentation. Rabbit was the only one that had a patent pending during the eStream competition, but it was released into the public domain in October The framework was then used to benchmark the candidates on a wide edtream of systems.

Notes on the ECRYPT Stream Cipher project (eSTREAM)

The selected Profile 1 algorithms were: Activities in Phase 1 included a large amount of analysis and presentations of analysis results as well as discussion. Submissions in Profile 1 were only accepted if they demonstrated software performance superior to AES in counter mode.

Additionally esttream number of algorithms for each profile are accepted as Phase 2 algorithms, meaning that they are still valid as eSTREAM candidates. These are all free for any use.
