**Title:**

On Boolean Functions with Generalized Cryptographic Properties

**Authors:**
An Braeken, Ventzislav Nikov, Svetla Nikova, Bart Preneel

**Abstract:**

By considering a new metric, we generalize cryptographic

properties of Boolean functions such as resiliency and propagation

characteristics. These new definitions result in a better understanding

of the properties of Boolean functions and provide a better insight in

the space defined by this metric. This approach leads to the

construction of ``hand-made’’ Boolean functions, i.e., functions for

which the security with respect to some specific monotone sets of inputs

is considered, instead of the security with respect to all possible

monotone sets with the same cardinality, as in the usual definitions.

This approach has the advantage that some trade-offs between important

properties of Boolean functions can be relaxed.
