Evolving balanced Boolean functions with optimal resistance to algebraic and fast algebraic attacks, maximal algebraic degree, and very high nonlinearity.
James McLaughlin and John A. Clark
Abstract: Using simulated annealing, we derive several equivalence classes of balanced Boolean functions with optimum algebraic immunity, fast algebraic resistance, and maximum possible algebraic degree. For numbers n of input bits less than 16, these functions also possess superior nonlinearity to all Boolean functions so far obtained with said properties.
