[2/27/24, 11:00 AM EST] CSRC has been experiencing technical issues. If you are unable to access a CSRC page or resource, or get a 503 error, please try reloading the page several times--it may help to wait a few minutes before trying again. We apologize for the inconvenience, and hope to have a solution in place next week.
One of the main challenges cryptography needs to deal with is balancing the performances of a cryptographic primitive with its security. That is why in 2015, the National Institute of Standards and Technologies (NIST) has begun a standardization process to solicit the creation of new lightweight cryptographic algorithms. We then wondered which of this standardization finalists would suit the best to a white-box implementation.
To this end, we studied different algorithms structures on their encodability to later develop our white-box encoding solution. Afterwards, we reviewed the standardization finalists on the applicability of our solution to those algorithms, and finally apply it to GIFT, the permutation of GIFT-COFB.
