By Mohammad Ubaidullah Bokhari Shadab Alam Syed Hamid Hasan

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 May 2014

Hardware based ciphers are most suitable for resource constrained environments to provide information security and confidentiality. Grain is one such hardware based synchronous stream cipher. The motive of this study is to present a comprehensive survey and review of Grain family of stream ciphers that is one of the portfolio candidates in the hardware based category of eSTREAM. Security features and different attacks on these ciphers have been studied in this paper to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of these designs.
