Cryptanalysis of the permutation based algorithm SpoC

Authors: Liliya Kraleva, Raluca Posteuca, Vincent Rijmen


In this paper we present an analysis of the SpoC cipher, a second round candidate of the NIST Lightweight Crypto Standardization process. First we present a differential analysis on the sLiSCP-light permutation, a core element of SpoC. Then we propose a series of attacks on both versions of SpoC, namely round-reduced differential tag forgery and message recovery attacks, as well as a time-memory trade-off key-recovery attack on the full round version of Spoc-64. Finally, we present an observation regarding the constants used in the sLiSCP-light permutation. To the best of our knowledge, this paper represents the first third-party analysis on both SpoC cipher and the sLiSCP-light permutation.
