Zcipher Algorithm

Dec 2, 2007

Zcipher is a symmetric encryption algorithm made by Ilya Levin few years ago. It is a 64-bit block cipher with a 128-bit key. Zcipher is not patented and public domain.

Please note that it is a toy cipher, not a serious replacement for AES or any other industry–acknowledged decent cipher.


Updated on Dec 7, 2007

The codebook section of Appendix A in the algorithm specification document was updated with the cryptovariable value for clarity.

Public Talk

Ilya presented Zcipher at the rump session during the Asiacrypt 2007 conference, which was held in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia.
