Project Title: Bitslicing Algorithms
The implications of this are important, as it could lead to an alternative method of encrypting data and proof that a bitsilce method would work on the new AES encryption. The latter could save a tremendous amount of computer time if it works. We hope to be able to make an efficient encryption program and to bitslice it to prove the efficiency of the bitslice technique.
We will begin by researching C++ coding, in which few if any encryption programs have been written. We will then attempt to write an efficent encryption program by utilizing advanced C++ coding techniques. After debugging our encryption program and proving that it works and is not susceptible to hacking, we will attempt a bitslice speed improvement.
If the bitslice technique proves effective, we will then attempt to use bitslicing on the current AES encryption standard to improve its efficiency.
