- | ===== Guidelines: Features of AE Schemes ===== | + | ===== Guidelines: Overview Table ===== |

The guidelines in this section refer to the AE scheme overview table found on the [[ae_zoo|Authenticated Encryption Zoo front page]]. In the following we specify the meaning of each column of the table and give what we consider valid options for each column. If you feel that a valid option is missing for a particular column, we encourage you to e-mail ''aezoo@compute.dtu.dk'' with your suggestions for changes. | The guidelines in this section refer to the AE scheme overview table found on the [[ae_zoo|Authenticated Encryption Zoo front page]].

With our valid options below, we try to capture all definitions or levels of which a certain property is obtained, allowing for a good comparison of the candidates, and being fair to everyone. |

- | For candidates containing several, say K, parameter sets, and where properties differ across these parameter sets, we suggest to comma-separate the properties for each set, such that the ith option in the comma-separated lists across all columns of the table correspond to the same parameter set of that particular candidate. | + | This classification follows the comprehensive study by Abed, Forler, and Lucks (see [[http://eprint.iacr.org/2014/792|ePrint report 2014/792]]). We would also like to acknowledge the slides from Daghstuhl 2014 by Bart Preneel, from which we have drawn inspiration for these guidelines. |

==== Type ==== | ==== Type ==== | ||

- | Specify the type of the scheme(s). The format should be **MAINTYPE/SUBTYPE**, where **MAINTYPE** is one of | + | Specify the type of the scheme. Should be one of the following: |

- | * **BC** (when the scheme is based on a block cipher) | + | * **BC**: block cipher based scheme |

- | * **P** (when the scheme is based on a permutation) | + | * **SC**: stream cipher based scheme |

- | * **Other** (when none of the first two apply) | + | * **Sponge**: scheme based on Sponge construction (duplex or otherwise) |

- | and **SUBTYPE** is one of | + | * **P**: permutation based scheme |

- | * **AES-K** (when the underlying block cipher is unmodified AES with key size K. Omit -K for AES-128) | + | * **CF**: scheme based on compression function |

- | * **AES-K[n]** (when the underlying block cipher is n rounds of AES with key size K. Omit -K for AES-128) | + | |

- | * **AES-like** (when based on some modified version of AES) | + | ==== Primitive ==== |

- | * **Named BC** (e.g. LED-80, when some other named block cipher is used) | + | Lists the underlying primitive used for the scheme. Possible entries are |

- | * **Sponge[p]** (when based on a Sponge-like construction. Can replace p with a named permutation, which can either be part of the submission or existing permutation, e.g. Keccak) | + | * **AES**: when the full AES-128 is used in a mode of operation or otherwise |

- | * **FSR** (based on feedback shift register(s)) | + | * **AES[r]**: when reduced r-round AES-128 is used |

- | * **ARX** (modular addition, rotation and XOR) | + | * **Other named primitive**: e.g. Rijndael-256, PRESENT-80, SHA2, etc. |

- | * **LRX** (logical operations, rotation and XOR) | + | * **Other construction types underlying the design**: e.g. LFSR, ARX, SPN, etc. |

- | * **Comp[f]** (when based on a compression function. Can replace f with a named compression function, which can either be part of the submission or existing compression function, e.g. SHA256) | + | |

+ | ==== Parallel E/D ==== | ||

+ | Specify separately whether the scheme is parallelizable in encryption (E) and decryption (D). Valid options are: | ||

+ | * **+/+**: parallelizable in both encryption and decryption | ||

+ | * **+/-**: parallelizable in encryption only | ||

+ | * **-/+**: parallelizable in decryption only | ||

+ | * **-/-**: neither parallelizable in encryption nor decryption | ||

+ | | ||

+ | ==== Online ==== | ||

+ | Specify whether the scheme is online. An online cipher has the property that the encryption of message block $M_i$ depends only on message blocks $M_1,\ldots,M_{i-1}$. Valid options are: | ||

+ | * **+**: scheme is online | ||

+ | * **-**: scheme is offline | ||

+ | | ||

+ | ==== Inverse-free ==== | ||

+ | Specifies whether the inverse of the underlying primitive is needed. Valid options are: | ||

+ | * **+**: inverse not needed | ||

+ | * **-**: inverse needed | ||

+ | | ||

+ | ==== Security proof ==== | ||

+ | Specifies whether the scheme has a proof of security. Valid options are: | ||

+ | * **+**: there is a proof of security | ||

+ | * **-**: there is no proof of security | ||

+ | | ||

+ | ==== Nonce-MR ==== | ||

+ | States the robustness of the scheme when nonces are repeated. We split the consideration up for **offline** schemes and **online** schemes separately. Valid entries for both are: | ||

+ | * **NONE**: when no guarantee is given is nonces are repeated | ||

- | To specify several options for parameter sets, curly braces can be used, e.g. BC/{AES,LED-80} for a block cipher based scheme which uses AES-128 and LED-80. | + | == For offline schemes == |

- | ==== Parallelizable (E/D) ==== | + | * **OFF-MAX**: when repeating a nonce leaks only the ability to see a repeated message |

- | Specify separately whether the scheme is parallelizable in encryption (E) and decryption (D). Valid options for both cases are: | + | * **OFF-SOME**: when //some// form of robustness is guaranteed (anywhere in between **NONE** and **OFF-MAX**) |

- | * **Fully** (if there is a separation of the data into b chunks, such that each of these chunks of data can be **fully** processed independently of the others, allowing for constant overhead) | + | |

- | * **Partly** (if there is a separation of the data into b chunks, such that each of these chunks of data can **partly** be processed independently of the others, allowing for constant overhead) | + | |

- | * **No** (if none of the above apply) | + | |

- | ==== Online (E/D) ==== | + | == For online schemes == |

- | Specify separately whether the scheme is online in encryption (E) and decryption (D). Valid options for both cases are: | + | * **ON-MAX**: all an adversary can learn is the longest common prefix of messages for repeated nonces |

- | * **Fully** (if the scheme can process data, and output processed data, on-the-fly, using only constant memory, and **not needing to know the length of data**) | + | * **ON-SOME**: when //some// form of robustness is guaranteed (anywhere in between **NONE** and **ON-MAX**) |

- | * **Needs length** (when the above applies, except one needs to know the length of data) | + | |

- | * **No** | + | |

- | ==== Nonce MR ==== | ||

- | State the schemes resistance towards nonce misuse. Here, the nonce is defined as the tuple consisting of private message number and public message number. Valid options are: | ||

- | * **MAX** (leaks only whether a plaintext is repeated) | ||

- | * **MAX online** (leaks only the LCP (longest common prefix) of plaintexts) | ||

- | * **LCP+X** (leaks LCP and XOR of next plaintext block) | ||

- | * **A+N** (when there is some level of security if all associated data + nonce pairs are unique) | ||

- | * **None** (when all security is lost if nonce is repeated) | ||

- | |||

- | ==== Inverse free ==== | ||

- | State whether the scheme requires the inverse of the underlying primitive. ONLY applicable for block cipher- or permutation-based modes. Valid options are: | ||

- | * **Yes** | ||

- | * **No** | ||

- | * **N/A** (for when not applicable, see above) |
