The GLUON Family: A Lightweight Hash Function Family Based on FCSRs

Abstract

Since the beginning of the SHA3 competition, the cryptographic community has seen the emergence of a new kind of primitives: the lightweight cryptographic hash functions. At the time writing this article, two representatives of this category have been published: Quark [7] and PHOTON [18] designed to match RFID constraints. In this paper, we propose a third representative of this category which is called GLUON. It is based on the sponge construction model [11] as Quark and PHOTON and inspired by two stream ciphers F-FCSR-v3 [4] and X-FCSR-v2 [10]. From the generic definition of our lightweight hash function, we derive three different instances according to the required security level that must be reached. For example, our lightest instance (GLUON-128/8) dedicated to 64-bit security level fits in 2071 gate-equivalents which stays competitive when compared with the parallel implementation of U-Quark. The software performances are good for GLUON-224/32, our heaviest instance
