Abstract

Low powered devices, such as smart phones, tablets and sensors, present a particular challenge for advanced encryption systems. In this paper, we present a new quasigroup block encryption system that has low memory and computational requirements and hence suitable for low powered devices. We compare its performance against Advanced Encryption Standard-256 (AES-256) bit algorithm using the NIST statistical test suite (NIST-STS). Since it is well known that a good encryption algorithm must destroy any statistical properties of the input sequence and produce output close to a true random sequence, the NIST-STS suite results provide us a good test bench. In almost all tests from the suite, the proposed algorithm performs better than AES-256.
