A Refinement of ``A Key-recovery Attack on 855-round Trivium" From CRYPTO 2018

Ximing Fu and Xiaoyun Wang and Xiaoyang Dong and Willi Meier and Yonglin Hao and Boxin Zhao

Abstract: At CRYPTO 2018, we proposed a method to reduce the Boolean polynomial of 855-round Trivium. By multiplying a polynomial reduction factor, the output Boolean polynomial is simplified. Based on this method, a 855-round key-recovery attack on Trivium is introduced. In addition, we also give a practical attack on 721-round Trivium to show some rationality and evidence.

However, Yonglin Hao et al. find some errors in the 721-round attack recently. As a correction, we propose some new right 721-round example attacks based on our method proposed at CRYPTO 2018.
