High throughput in slices: the case of PRESENT, PRINCE and KATAN64 ciphers

Kostas Papapagiannopoulos

Abstract: This paper presents high-throughput assembly implementations of PRESENT, PRINCE and KATAN64 ciphers for the ATtiny family of AVR microcontrollers. We report throughput records, achieving the speed of 2967 clock cycles per block encryption for PRESENT, 1803 cycles for PRINCE and 23671 cycles for KATAN64. In addition, we offer insight into the `slicing' techniques used for high throughput and their application to lightweight cryptographic implementations. We also demonstrate the speed-memory tradeoff by constructing high-throughput implementations with large memory requirements.
