  Twofish - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Twofish is related to the earlier block cipher Blowfish.
Twofish's distinctive features are the use of pre-computed key-dependent S-boxes, and a relatively complex key schedule.
Twofish was designed by Bruce Schneier, John Kelsey, Doug Whiting, David Wagner, Chris Hall, and Niels Ferguson; the "extended Twofish team" who met to perform further cryptanalysis of Twofish and other AES contest entrants included Stefan Lucks, Tadayoshi Kohno, and Mike Stay.

 Links - CAESAR - Twofish   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Twofish is a 128-bit block cipher that accepts a variable-length key up to 256 bits.
The cipher is a 16-round Feistel network with a bijective F function mate up of four key-dependent 8-by-8-bit S-boxes, a fixed 4-by-4 maximum distance separable matrix over GF(2^8), a pseudo-Hadamard transform, bitwise rotations, and a carefully designed key schedule.
A fully optimized implementation of Twofish encrypts on a Pentium Pro at 17.8 clock cycles per byte, and an 8-bit smart card implementation encrypts at 1820 clock cycles per byte.

 Strong Encryption Package, Twofish
The Twofish block cipher is Counterpane Labs' candidate for the new Advanced Encryption Standard.
Twofish is a 128-bit block cipher, meaning that data is encrypted and decrypted in 128-bit chunks.
Twofish can be implemented with fewer rounds but there is no compelling reason to do this, as Twofish is a very fast algorithm already and attacks have been discovered against the 5 round version.

 Wired News: Twofish Heads to Washington   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Twofish, the sequel to Schneier's 5-year-old Blowfish block cypher, was submitted last week to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for consideration as the Advanced Encryption Standard.
Twofish is designed to be flexible with respect to the necessary performance tradeoffs between the creation of a "secret key" and execution of the actual encryption.
In submitting Twofish, Schneier's group joins about a dozen others aiming for the NIST standard, including IBM, RSA Data Security and Cylink.

Abstract: Twofish is a 128-bit block cipher submitted as a candidate for the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).
In this paper we consider mainly differentials of Twofish and show that there are differentials for Twofish for up to 16 rounds, predicting at least 32 bits of nontrivial information in every round.
As it turned out, the very same structure of Twofish that he was using prevented the attack he presented.

But Twofish accepts several key sizes, including 16 bytes, so there's likely no serious loss.
Why?) The real weakness is in the pass phrase, which certainly doesn't have that much entropy, and maybe in the random number generator that's producing the actual keys...

Twofish is an encryption algorithm based on an earlier algorithm, Blowfish, and was a finalist for a NIST Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm to replace the DES algorithm.
Twofish uses a single key of any length up to 256 bits and is said to be efficient both for software that runs in smaller processors such as those in smart cards and for embedding in hardware.
Designed by Bruce Schneier's Counterpane Systems, Twofish is unpatented, license-free, and freely available for use.

Abstract: Twofish is a 128-bit block cipher submitted as an AES candidate [SKW+98].
Mirza and Murphy [MM99] recently noted two interesting properties in the Twofish key schedule for 128-bit keys: there is a non-uniform distribution of 128-bit whitening keys, and the 64-bit round subkeys are non-uniformly distributed over each subset of keys that fixes the S-boxes.
