Hardware Framework for the Rabbit Stream Cipher
Rabbit is a software-oriented synchronous stream cipher with very strong security properties and support for 128-bit keys. Rabbit is part of the European Union's eSTREAM portfolio of stream ciphers addressing the need for strong and computationally efficient (i.e., fast) ciphers. Extensive cryptanalysis confirms Rabbit's strength against modern attacks; attacks with complexity lower than an exhaustive key search have not been found. Previous software implementations have demonstrated Rabbit's high throughput, however, the performance in hardware has only been estimated.
