Improvement of the Round Key Generation of AES


The key generation algorithm of AES was introduced; the weaknesses of the key generation design of AES were investigated. According to the key demand put forward a kind of new design idea, and this designing strategy was developed, which can be used to improve the key generation algorithm of AES. An analysis shows that such improvement can enhance the safety of the original algorithm without reducing its efficiency.
