Schafer, Neil Brendan. (Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2009-09);Boolean bent functions have desirable cryptographic properties in that they have maximum nonlinearity, which hardens a cryptographic function against linear cryptanalysis attacks. Furthermore, bent functions are extremely ...
Ulker, Birol (Monterey, Calif. Naval Postgraduate School, 2002-03);A logical function f is AND bi-decomposable if it can be written as f x1, x2)= h1 (x1) h2(x2), where x1 and x2 are disjoint. Such functions are important because they can be efficiently implemented. Also many benchmark ...
An analysis of bent function properties using the transeunt triangle and the SRC-6 reconfigurable computer Shafer, Jennifer L. (Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2009-09);Linear attacks against cryptosystems can be defeated when combiner functions are composed of highly nonlinear Boolean functions. The highest nonlinearity Boolean functions, or bent functions, are not common- especially ...
