    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;iFeed is a blockcipher-based authenticated encryption design by Zhang, Wu, Sui, and Wang and a first round candidate to the CAESAR competition. iFeed is claimed to achieve confidentiality and authenticity in the nonce-respecting setting, and confidentiality in the nonce-reuse setting. Recently, Chakraborti et al. published forgeries on iFeed in the RUP and nonce-reuse settings. The latter attacks, however, do not invalidate the iFeed designers’ security claims. In this work, we consider the security of iFeed in the nonce-respecting setting, and show that a valid forgery can be constructed after only one encryption query. Even more, the forgery leaks both subkeys &lt;em&gt;E&lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;K&lt;/em&gt;(0128) and &lt;em&gt;E&lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;K&lt;/em&gt;(&lt;em&gt;P&lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;M&lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;N&lt;/em&gt;∥1), where &lt;em&gt;K&lt;/em&gt; is the secret key and &lt;em&gt;P&lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;M&lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;N&lt;/em&gt; the nonce used for the authenticated encryption. Furthermore, we show how at the price of just one additional forgery one can learn &lt;em&gt;E&lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt;K&lt;/em&gt;(&lt;em&gt;P&lt;/em&gt;∗) for any freely chosen plaintext &lt;em&gt;P&lt;/em&gt;∗. These design weaknesses allow one to decrypt earlier iFeed encryptions under the respective nonces, breaking the forward secrecy of iFeed, and leading to a total security compromise of the iFeed design.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
