Constructions of S-boxes with uniform sharing

Kerem Varici and Svetla Nikova and Ventzislav Nikov and Vincent Rijmen

Abstract: In this paper we focus on S-box constructions. We consider the uniformity property of an S-box which plays an important role in Threshold Implementations (TI). Most papers so far have studied TI sharings for given S-boxes. We proceed in the opposite way: starting from $n$-bit S-boxes with known sharings we construct new $(n+1)$-bit S-boxes from them with the desired sharings. In addition, we investigate the self-equivalency of S-boxes and show some interesting properties.
