Introduction NOTE: Most of the following text is taken from [AES-WRAP], and the assertions regarding the security of the AES Key Wrap algorithm are made by the US Government, not by the authors of this document. This specification is intended to satisfy the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Key Wrap requirement to: Design a cryptographic algorithm called a Key Wrap that uses the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) as a primitive to securely encrypt plaintext key(s) with any associated integrity information and data, such that the combination could be longer than the width of the AES block size (128-bits). Each ciphertext bit should be a highly non- linear function of each plaintext bit, and (when unwrapping) each plaintext bit should be a highly non-linear function of each ciphertext bit. It is sufficient to approximate an ideal pseudorandom permutation to the degree that exploitation of undesirable phenomena is as unlikely as guessing the AES engine key. This key wrap algorithm needs to provide ample security to protect keys in the context of prudently designed key management architecture. Throughout this document, any data being wrapped will be referred to as the key data. It makes no difference to the algorithm whether the data being wrapped is a key; in fact there is often good reason to include other data with the key, to wrap multiple keys together, or to wrap data that isn't strictly a key. So, the term "key data" is used broadly to mean any data being wrapped, but particularly keys, since this is primarily a key wrap algorithm. The key used to do the wrapping will be referred to as the key-encryption key (KEK). In this document a KEK can be any valid key supported by the AES codebook. That is, a KEK can be a 128-bit key, a 192-bit key, or a 256-bit key. 2. Overview The AES key wrap algorithm is designed to wrap or encrypt key data. The key wrap operates on blocks of 64 bits. Before being wrapped, the key data is parsed into n blocks of 64 bits. The only restriction the key wrap algorithm places on n is that n be at least two. (For key data with length less than or equal to 64 bits, the constant field used in this specification and the key data form a single 128-bit codebook input making this key wrap unnecessary.) The key wrap algorithm accommodates all supported AES key sizes. However, other cryptographic values often need to be wrapped. One such value is the seed of the random number generator for DSS. This seed value requires n to be greater than four. Undoubtedly other values require this type of protection. Therefore, no upper bound is imposed on n. The AES key wrap can be configured to use any of the three key sizes supported by the AES codebook. The choice of a key size affects the overall security provided by the key wrap, but it does not alter the description of the key wrap algorithm. Therefore, in the description that follows, the key wrap is described generically; no key size is specified for the KEK. 2.1 Notation and Definitions The following notation is used in the description of the key wrapping algorithms: AES(K, W) Encrypt W using the AES codebook with key K AES-1(K, W) Decrypt W using the AES codebook with key K MSB(j, W) Return the most significant j bits of W LSB(j, W) Return the least significant j bits of W B1 ^ B2 The bitwise exclusive or (XOR) of B1 and B2 B1 | B2 Concatenate B1 and B2 K The key-encryption key K n The number of 64-bit key data blocks s The number of steps in the wrapping process, s = 6n P[i] The ith plaintext key data block C[i] The ith ciphertext data block A The 64-bit integrity check register R[i] An array of 64-bit registers where i = 0, 1, 2, ..., n A[t], R[i][t] The contents of registers A and R[i] after encryption step t. IV The 64-bit initial value used during the wrapping process. In the key wrap algorithm, the concatenation function will be used to concatenate 64-bit quantities to form the 128-bit input to the AES codebook. The extraction functions will be used to split the 128-bit output from the AES codebook into two 64-bit quantities. 2.2 Algorithms The specification of the key wrap algorithm requires the use of the AES codebook [AES]. The next three sections will describe the key wrap algorithm, the key unwrap algorithm, and the inherent data integrity check. 2.2.1 Key Wrap The inputs to the key wrapping process are the KEK and the plaintext to be wrapped. The plaintext consists of n 64-bit blocks, containing the key data being wrapped. The key wrapping process is described below. Inputs: Plaintext, n 64-bit values {P1, P2, ..., Pn}, and Key, K (the KEK). Outputs: Ciphertext, (n+1) 64-bit values {C0, C1, ..., Cn}. 1) Initialize variables. Set A0 to an initial value (see 2.2.3) For i = 1 to n R[0][i] = P[i] 2) Calculate intermediate values. For t = 1 to s, where s = 6n A[t] = MSB(64, AES(K, A[t-1] | R[t-1][1])) ^ t For i = 1 to n-1 R[t][i] = R[t-1][i+1] R[t][n] = LSB(64, AES(K, A[t-1] | R[t-1][1])) 3) Output the results. Set C[0] = A[t] For i = 1 to n C[i] = R[t][i] An alternative description of the key wrap algorithm involves indexing rather than shifting. This approach allows one to calculate the wrapped key in place, avoiding the rotation in the previous description. This produces identical results and is more easily implemented in software. Inputs: Plaintext, n 64-bit values {P1, P2, ..., Pn}, and Key, K (the KEK). Outputs: Ciphertext, (n+1) 64-bit values {C0, C1, ..., Cn}. 1) Initialize variables. Set A = IV, an initial value (see 2.2.3) For i = 1 to n R[i] = P[i] 2) Calculate intermediate values. For j = 0 to 5 For i=1 to n B = AES(K, A | R[i]) A = MSB(64, B) ^ t where t = (n*j)+i R[i] = LSB(64, B) 3) Output the results. Set C[0] = A For i = 1 to n C[i] = R[i] 2.2.2 Key Unwrap The inputs to the unwrap process are the KEK and (n+1) 64-bit blocks of ciphertext consisting of previously wrapped key. It returns n blocks of plaintext consisting of the n 64-bit blocks of the decrypted key data. Inputs: Ciphertext, (n+1) 64-bit values {C0, C1, ..., Cn}, and Key, K (the KEK). Outputs: Plaintext, n 64-bit values {P1, P2, ..., Pn}. 1) Initialize variables. Set A[s] = C[0] where s = 6n For i = 1 to n R[s][i] = C[i] 2) Calculate the intermediate values. For t = s to 1 A[t-1] = MSB(64, AES-1(K, ((A[t] ^ t) | R[t][n])) R[t-1][1] = LSB(64, AES-1(K, ((A[t]^t) | R[t][n])) For i = 2 to n R[t-1][i] = R[t][i-1] 3) Output the results. If A[0] is an appropriate initial value (see 2.2.3), Then For i = 1 to n P[i] = R[0][i] Else Return an error The unwrap algorithm can also be specified as an index based operation, allowing the calculations to be carried out in place. Again, this produces the same results as the register shifting approach. Inputs: Ciphertext, (n+1) 64-bit values {C0, C1, ..., Cn}, and Key, K (the KEK). Outputs: Plaintext, n 64-bit values {P0, P1, K, Pn}. 1) Initialize variables. Set A = C[0] For i = 1 to n R[i] = C[i] 2) Compute intermediate values. For j = 5 to 0 For i = n to 1 B = AES-1(K, (A ^ t) | R[i]) where t = n*j+i A = MSB(64, B) R[i] = LSB(64, B) 3) Output results. If A is an appropriate initial value (see 2.2.3), Then For i = 1 to n P[i] = R[i] Else Return an error 2.2.3 Key Data Integrity -- the Initial Value The initial value (IV) refers to the value assigned to A[0] in the first step of the wrapping process. This value is used to obtain an integrity check on the key data. In the final step of the unwrapping process, the recovered value of A[0] is compared to the expected value of A[0]. If there is a match, the key is accepted as valid, and the unwrapping algorithm returns it. If there is not a match, then the key is rejected, and the unwrapping algorithm returns an error. The exact properties achieved by this integrity check depend on the definition of the initial value. Different applications may call for somewhat different properties; for example, whether there is need to determine the integrity of key data throughout its lifecycle or just when it is unwrapped. This specification defines a default initial value that supports integrity of the key data during the period it is wrapped (2.2.3.1). Provision is also made to support alternative initial values (in 2.2.3.2). 2.2.3.1 Default Initial Value The default initial value (IV) is defined to be the hexadecimal constant: A[0] = IV = A6A6A6A6A6A6A6A6 The use of a constant as the IV supports a strong integrity check on the key data during the period that it is wrapped. If unwrapping produces A[0] = A6A6A6A6A6A6A6A6, then the chance that the key data is corrupt is 2^-64. If unwrapping produces A[0] equal to any other value,Expand then the unwrap must return an error and not return any key data. 2.2.3.2 Alternative Initial Values When the key wrap is used as part of a larger key management protocol or system, the desired scope for data integrity may be more than just the key data or the desired duration for more than just the period that it is wrapped. Also, if the key data is not just an AES key, it may not always be a multiple of 64 bits. Alternative definitions of the initial value can be used to address such problems. NIST will define alternative initial values in future key management publications as needed. In order to accommodate a set of alternatives that may evolve over time, key wrap implementations that are not application-specific will require some flexibility in the way that the initial value is set and tested. 3. Object Identifiers NIST has assigned the following object identifiers to identify the key wrap algorithm with the default initial value specified in 2.2.3.1. One object identifier is assigned for use with each of the KEK AES key sizes. aes OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { joint-iso-itu-t(2) country(16) us(840) organization(1) gov(101) csor(3) nistAlgorithm(4) 1 } id-aes128-wrap OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { aes 5 } id-aes192-wrap OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { aes 25 } id-aes256-wrap OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { aes 45 } 4. Test Vectors The examples in this section were generated using the index-based implementation of the key wrap algorithm. The use of this approach allows a straightforward software implementation of the key wrap algorithm. 4.1 Wrap 128 bits of Key Data with a 128-bit KEK Input: KEK: 000102030405060708090A0B0C0D0E0F Key Data: 00112233445566778899AABBCCDDEEFF Wrap: Step t A R1 R2 1 In A6A6A6A6A6A6A6A6 0011223344556677 8899AABBCCDDEEFF Enc F4740052E82A2251 74CE86FBD7B805E7 8899AABBCCDDEEFF XorT F4740052E82A2250 74CE86FBD7B805E7 8899AABBCCDDEEFF 2 In F4740052E82A2250 74CE86FBD7B805E7 8899AABBCCDDEEFF Enc 06BA4EBDE7768D0B 74CE86FBD7B805E7 D132EE38147E76F8 XorT 06BA4EBDE7768D09 74CE86FBD7B805E7 D132EE38147E76F8 3 In 06BA4EBDE7768D09 74CE86FBD7B805E7 D132EE38147E76F8 Enc FC967627BE937208 FE6E8D679C5D3460 D132EE38147E76F8 XorT FC967627BE93720B FE6E8D679C5D3460 D132EE38147E76F8 4 In FC967627BE93720B FE6E8D679C5D3460 D132EE38147E76F8 Enc 5896EA9028EE203B FE6E8D679C5D3460 07B2BD973E36A6FC XorT 5896EA9028EE203F FE6E8D679C5D3460 07B2BD973E36A6FC 5.

If unwrapping produces the expected check value in A[0], then the chance that the key data is corrupt is 2^-64. If unwrapping produces an unexpected value, then the algorithm implementation MUST return an error, and it MUST NOT return any key data. Implementations must protect the KEK from disclosure. Compromise of the KEK may result in the disclosure of all key data protected with that KEK. 5. Security Considerations The key wrap algorithm includes a strong integrity check on the key data.

If unwrapping produces the expected check value in A[0], then the chance that the key data is corrupt is 2^-64. If unwrapping produces an unexpected value, then the algorithm implementation MUST return an error, and it MUST NOT return any key data. Implementations must protect the KEK from disclosure.
