A Study on RAM Requirements of Various SHA-3 Candidates on Low-cost 8-bit CPUs

Kota Ideguchi and Toru Owada and Hirotaka Yoshida

Abstract: In this paper, we compare the implementation costs of various SHA-3 candidates on low-cost 8-bit CPUs by estimating RAM/ROM requirements of them. As a first step toward this kind of research, in our comparison, we make reasonable estimations of RAM/ROM requirements of them which can be done without implementation.
