Light weight cryptographic algorithms are essential to provide security in many resource constraint devices like RFID cards, smart cards and wireless sensors. The importance of RFID tags is increasing day by day. As they are resource constraint devices, they support only light weight cryptographic algorithm. Hummingbird is one of the Lightweight Authenticated Cryptographic Encryption Algorithm. Hummingbird is a combination of both block cipher and stream cipher along with a rotor machine

The security and throughput of Hummingbird Cryptographic algorithm is improved by adding Hash functions. This paper gives the review work of hummingbird cryptographic algorithm done on different platform like microcontroller, sparton-3FPGA etc.
