End of Phase 2
At the end of Phase 2, we announced a second classification of algorithms. We anticipate making a third classification in the middle of 2008.
For Profile 1 (SW), this selection is as follows:
For Profile 2 (HW), this selection is as follows:
What do the categories stand for?
- Phase 3: These are designs that eSTREAM wishes to move to the third phase of the eSTREAM project.
- Archived: These are designs which eSTREAM will no longer actively consider for the final portfolio.
- Phase 1 Archived: There are designs that were not considered in Phase 2.
- Phase 2 Archived: There are designs that were considered in Phase 2 but will not be considered in Phase 3.
How was the selection made?eSTREAM assembled a panel of experts to consider the information to hand. The panel consisted of Steve Babbage (Vodafone, UK), Christophe De Canniere (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium), Anne Canteaut (INRIA, France ), Carlos Cid (Royal Holloway, University of London, UK), Henri Gilbert (France Telecom R&D, France), Thomas Johansson (Lund University, Sweden), Christof Paar (Ruhr-University of Bochum, Germany), Matthew Parker (University of Bergen, Norway), Bart Preneel (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium), Vincent Rijmen (Graz University of Technology, Austria), Matt Robshaw (France Telecom R&D, France) and Hongjun Wu (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium).
The panel studied all information available on these primitives -
including the original description, cryptanalysis, performance,
responses by authors to analysis, forum discussions - and
made the selection. The details are given in the Phase 2 report.
