Lightweight Cryptography

Round 2 Candidates

The following table lists the Round 2 Candidates of the lightweight crypto standardization process.

The success of the NIST Lightweight Crypto Standardization process relies on the efforts of the researchers from the cryptographic community that provide security, implementation and performance analysis of the candidate algorithms. NIST strongly encourages public evaluation and publication of the results throughout the process.

Official comments on the Round 2 Candidates should be submitted using the "Submit Comment" link for the appropriate algorithm. Comments from the lwc-forum Google group subscribers will also be forwarded to the lwc-forum Google group list. We will periodically post and update the comments received to the appropriate algorithm.

All relevant comments will be posted in their entirety and should not include PII information in the body of the email message.

Please refrain from using OFFICIAL COMMENT to ask administrative questions, which should be sent to lightweight-crypto@nist.gov

By selecting the "Website" links, you will be leaving NIST.gov. We have provided links to submitter web sites because they may have information that would be of interest to you. No inferences should be drawn on account of other sites being referenced, or not, from this page. There may be other web sites that are more appropriate for your purpose. NIST does not necessarily endorse the views expressed, or concur with the facts presented on these sites. Further, NIST does not endorse any commercial products that may be mentioned on these sites.

 

History of Round 2 Updates
The file links will be will be included after the September 27, 2019 deadline.
