Lightweight Cryptography Due to the importance of incorporating cryptography

in low-power devices, a new “subfield” of cryptography is being developed called
lightweight cryptography. This has the goal of providing cryptographic solutions
that are uniquely tailored for low-power devices that need to manage resource
vs. security constraints. Research lightweight cryptography. What are its goals?
How will it work? Who is behind it? Will it be standardized? When will it appear?
Write a one-page paper on your findings.

Lightweight Cryptography:
Cryptography is the combination process of encryption and decryption. That is,
Cryptography is a process in which an ordinary plain text information is
converted into unintelligible text or cypher text and then back to the plain
text. Lightweight Cryptography is almost the same thing but with a
consideration of lightweight and security. Lightweight Cryptography helps to
reach high levels of security using only a small computing power. The definition
for Lightweight Cryptography on Internet is - Lightweight cryptography is a
cryptographic algorithm or protocol tailored for implementation in constrained
environments including RFID tags, sensors, contactless smart cards, health-care
devices and so on.
The goal of lightweight cryptography is to enable a diverse range of modern
applications. The modern applications like the smart meters, vehicle security
systems, wireless patient monitoring systems, Intelligent Transport Systems
(ITS) and the Internet of Things.  The Lightweight Cryptography helps a very
wide variety of devices. It can be implemented on a wide range of hardware and
software. It's communication can be wired or wireless. Wireless devices are
powered either by electromagnetic induction or by a battery. The battery can be
disposable or rechargeable. For some applications, the energy or power
consumption is important. But for other applications a low latency is more
important. The limiting factor can be that hardware area or software code size is
small or that only a small amount of RAM is available.

The Lightweight cryptography works with the help of various features. They can
be the block ciphers, stream ciphers, hash functions and so on. Lightweight
cryptography contributes to the security of various smart objects networks
because of its efficiency and smaller footprint. The lightweight primitives should
be be implemented in the networks.

Lightweight cryptography is mainly used in the Internet of things. The Internet of

things faces a number of challenges like security, privacy, power, bandwidth,
scalability and heterogeneity. The two reasons that support lightweight
cryptography are: Efficiency of end-to-end communication and Applicability to
lower resource devices.

The lightweight cryptography will be standardized so that the public can access
all the benefits of lightweight cryptography. The lightweight cryptography has
been already a hot topic of discussion. It has already appeared for the first round
of standardization.

Lightweight encryption is defined as a sector which is derived from

cryptographic algorithm which is meant for the resource constrained devices in

The Pros and Cons of light weight ciphers:


1) It is extremly low on demands for the resources as well as power


2) Fast to be used in operation

3) It is inexpensive


Difficult to optimize the algorithm which is existing.

Clefia : It is defined as a proprietary block cipher algorithm which was developed

by Sony.

Hight: It is another form of cryptography.

mCrypton: It is a light weighted block cipher meant for the security of the Low
cost RFID tags as well as sensors.
