Performance Comparisons, Design, and Implementation of RC5 Symmetric Encryption Core using Reconfigurable Hardware
With the wireless communications coming to homes and offices, the need to have secure data transmission is of utmost importance. Today, it is important that information is sent confidentially over the network without fear of hackers or unauthorized access to it. This makes security implementation in networks a crucial demand. Symmetric Encryption Cores provide data protection via the use of secret key only known to the encryption and decryption ends of the communication path. In this paper, first, an overview of two well known symmetric encryption cores is presented, namely the 3DES and RC5. Then a performance evaluation of their computer based implementation is compared to demonstrate the RC5 superior performance. The conventional hardware architecture of the RC5 core is presented and investigated. A hardware system design is proposed to improve its performance. The proposed architecture achieved with three stage pipeline technique an increased encryption throughput as compared to rel...
