A Survey of ARX-based Symmetric-key Primitives

Nur Fasihah Mohd Esa, Shekh Faisal Abdul Latip, Mohd Rizuan Baharon


Addition Rotation XOR is suitable for fast implementation symmetric –key primitives, such as stream and block ciphers. This paper presents a review of several block and stream ciphers based on ARX construction followed by the discussion on the security analysis of symmetric key primitives where the best attack for every cipher was carried out. We benchmark the implementation on software and hardware according to the evaluation metrics. Therefore, this paper aims at providing a reference for a better selection of ARX design strategy.
