Traditional cryptographic block cipher algorithms are often unsuitable for low-resource profiled IoT (Internet of Things) devices. A lightweight cryptographic algorithm is thus mandated. The S boxes are often called the heart of a cryptographic protocol, as a considerable amount of resource and time complexities are associated with the design of an S box. A lightweight S box will consume less memory, less power and less time, ensuring a high-level Shanon’s property of confusion. This paper proposes a lightweight S box design to meet all the requirements of lightweight cryptographic ciphers. The proposed method applies a couple of transformations- the multiplicative inverse in the Galois field (2 4) and affine transformations on selected irreducible polynomials to create 4 × 4 S-boxes. Several cryptanalyses such as balance test, bijection property, difference distribution table test, and Boomerang Connectivity were performed to demonstrate the robust characteristics of the proposed method.

|Other||Heterogeneous networking has long been the focus of computer network and communications researchers worldwide. Since 2004, QSHINE has been established as the primary venue for researchers and practitioners to present novel ideas on heterogeneous networking related subjects, particularly for quality, experience, reliability, security and robustness of heterogeneous networking. QSHINE 2021 sets the goal to be a high-quality conference and an international forum for presentation and discussion of cutting-edge research in the field. The scope of QSHINE 2021 covers both newest theoretical and practical research topics to address the challenges from both the trending application requirements and the communication technologies.|
