A family of 6-to-4-bit S-boxes with large linear branch number

Daniel Loebenberger and Michael Nüsken

Abstract: We propose a family of 6-to-4-bit S-boxes with linear branch number 3. Since they also fulfill various further desirable properties, such S-boxes can serve as a building block for various block ciphers.
