Lightweight Countermeasure to Differential-Plaintext Attacks on Permutation Ciphers

Abstract : Many lightweight permutation based block ciphers have emerged for the use of encryption and security in the Internet of Things (IoT). However, recent work has shown a critical vulnerability in these ciphers due to the employment of static permutation networks in their architectures; Side-Channel Analysis and Differntial-Plaintext Attack (SCADPA) can be effectively performed on any cipher utilizing permutation networks. In this work, we present a lightweight solution for combating SCADPA. We demonstrate how this countermeasure can be employed on existing ciphers using the lightweight IoT PRESENT-80 cipher, providing multiple architectural implementations, and comparing the performance of these modified architectures against the unaltered PRESENT-80 cipher. Additionally, we analyze how this countermeasure impacts the resilience for all permutation ciphers when considering this attack scheme and provide alternative implementations and possible enhancements.
