2007 Designs, Codes and Cryptography  
We construct several examples of G-perfect nonlinear functions, both Z 2 -valued and Z a 2 -valued.  ...  The new cryptosystems, when combined with G-perfect nonlinear functions (similar to classical perfect nonlinear functions with one XOR replaced by a general group action), allow us to construct systems  ...  Moreover, note that |H| must divide |X| in order to have a G-perfect nonlinear function.

Generalized Boolean Bent Functions [chapter]

Laurent Poinsot, Sami Harari
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we largely develop this concept to define G-perfect nonlinearity and G-bent functions, where G is an Abelian group of involutions, and to show their equivalence as in the classical case.  ...  The notions of perfect nonlinearity and bent functions are closely dependent on the action of the group of translations over IF m 2 .  ...  A function f : IF m 2 −→ IF n 2 is G-perfect nonlinear if ∆ f = 2 m−n .  ...

Constructions of vectorial Boolean functions with good cryptographic properties

2016 Science China Information Sciences  
The upper bound on the nonlinearity of (n, m) functions is 2 n−1 − 2 n/2−1 , and functions achieving this maximum nonlinearity are called perfect nonlinear functions [2].  ...  Unfortunately, perfect nonlinear functions cannot be used directly because they are not balanced or correlation immune.  ...  Let G = (g 1 , g 2 , . . . , g m ) be an (n/2, m) perfect nonlinear function with g i (0 k ) = 0.
