Parallelizing the Camellia and SMS4 Block Ciphers - Extended version
The n-cell GF-NLFSR (Generalized Feistel-NonLinear Feedback Shift Register) structure [8] is a generalized unbalanced Feistel network that can be considered as a generalization of the outer function FO of the KASUMI block cipher. An advantage of this cipher over other n-cell generalized Feistel networks, e.g. SMS4 [11] and Camellia [5], is that it is parallelizable for up to n rounds. In hardware implementations, the benefits translate to speeding up encryption by up to n times while consuming similar area and significantly less power. At the same time n-cell GF-NLFSR structures offer similar proofs of security against differential cryptanalysis as conventional n-cell Feistel structures. We also ensure that parallelized versions of Camellia and SMS4 are resistant against other block cipher attacks such as linear, boomerang, integral, impossible differential, higher order differential,interpolation, slide, XSL and related-key differential attacks.
