Authenticated Encryption is an important and actively researched field of cryptography. This work will be closely related to the CAESAR competition of authenticated ciphers. The goal of the CAESAR competition is to select a portfolio of AE schemes suitable for various use cases and having strong cryptanalytic work done. There is no de facto standard for authenticated encryption and CAESAR winners may become such standards. The main goal of this research is to analyze CAESAR competition candidates and therefore to improve quality of the competition’s results. Another objective is to develop new cryptanalysis methods and combine and generalize existing ones.
