The encryption method PRESENT is the smallest cipher for cost and energy constrained applications. It is the result of a collaboration between the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (Germany), Orange Labs France and the Technical University of Denmark. The cipher design is characterized by its hardware efficiency which makes it even applicable in health insurance cards or RFID-labels (substitute for bar codes). Because the cipher combines low costs with a particularly high level of security it became an international standard. Now DHL honored Prof. Gregor Leander, Prof. Christof Paar and Prof. Axel Poschmann for jointly developing the crypto algorithm PRESENT.
