Efficient Hardware Implementations For The Advanced Encryption Standard Algorithm
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis introduces new efficient hardware implementations for the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm. Two main contributions are presented in this thesis, the first one is a high speed 128 bits AES encryptor, and the second one is a new 32 bits AES design. In first contribution a 128 bits loop unrolled sub-pipelined AES encryptor is presented. In this encryptor an efficient merging for the encryption process sub-steps is implemented after relocating them. The second contribution presents a 32 bits AES design. In this design, the S-BOX is implemented with internal pipelining and it is shared between the main round and the key expansion units. Also, the key expansion unit is implemented to work on the fly and in parallel with the main round unit. These designs have achieved higher FPGA (Throughput/Area) efficiency comparing to previous AES designs.
