This page summarizes the hardware performance for the smallest (in gate-equivalents) reported standard-cell ASIC implementation of each of the MACs considered. Note that the diversity of implementation scope, target technologies, and synthesis tools makes direct comparisons between different hardware implementations difficult. The more of these parameters agree, the more reasonable the comparison becomes.

The individual page of each MAC provides links to the specifications and to a source code, when available.

Note that the security of a MAC does not only depend on its digest size.
