AutorJattke, Patrick; Senker, Matthias; Wiesmaier, Alexander
AbstraktIn this paper we compare two lightweight stream ciphers, MICKEY 2.0 and WG-8, which can be used for data encryption in the Internet of Things. At first we provide a brief overview of both algorithms. This includes their basic functional principle, their different specifications, possible hardware implementations and their complexity. We conclude the overview with a short security evaluation. Finally, we provide a comparison of both algorithms pointing out differences, similarities and their applicability in the Internet of Things.
