Implementation aspects of Keccak

The purpose of this work is to scientifically analyze the gain obtained by implementing a parallel mode of use on top of Keccak. This includes tree hash modes and parallel authenticated encryption schemes. The student’s tasks would include:
– to model the performance of a mode as a function of its parameters;
– to measure the actual performance and to scientifically compare it to
the model;
– to propose optimal parameters or to fine-tune the mode.

Supervision: Keccak team – Director : Olivier Markowitch (ULB)
