  abstract =     "In this paper, we present a general framework for the
                 automated design of cryptographic block ciphers by
                 using Genetic Programming. We evolve highly nonlinear
                 and extremely efficient functions that can be used as
                 core components of any cryptographic construction. As
                 an example, a new block cipher named Raiden is
                 proposed. We present a preliminary security analysis of
                 our proposal and a comparison in terms of performance
                 with similar block ciphers such as TEA. The results
                 show that automatically-obtained schemes, such as the
                 one presented here, could be competitive both in
                 security and speed.",
