Abstract
FOX is a family of block ciphers designed by Junod and Vaudenay in 2004, which is the result of a joint project with the company MediaCrypt AG in Switzerland. Several attacks on reduced FOX have been proposed. In this paper we present an improbable differential cryptanalysis on the reduced-round FOX. By using this method, we present the attacks on 6, 7, and 8-round FOX64 with the time complexity of 276.92, 2141.27, and 2205.85 respectively.
