Comparison of a Few Small Ciphers Applicable to RFID

This paper presents performance analysis of three encryption algorithms designed for small package and implemented by software. We concentrate on features of a tiny platform, e.g. memory consumption and power demand. The discussion includes DESL, HIGHT and XXTEA. These ciphers are implemented by C language on a 8-bit AVR MCU platform, together compared with AES. None of these ciphers exceeds AES, but XXTEA uses less memory space at least.
