Comprehensive Analysis on Lightweight Cryptographic Algorithms for Low Resource Devices
Lightweight cryptography is a prominent research area in network security. It provides high security and is ideal for resource constrained based smart devices in smart environment. Smart gadgets such as RFID, Sensor Networks, and embedded systems form the smart environment and it helps in sharing information among objects at anytime, anywhere. Contribution of lightweight security algorithms and schemes in smart objects are great due to their properties such as computational power, memory size, etc. This paper presents the merits and demerits of lightweight ciphers. This paper also presents complete information about existing lightweight cryptography algorithms and the structure of lightweight cryptography.
