Blowfish - 8-Byte Block Cipher

This chapter provides tutorial examples and notes about Blowfish block cipher. Topics include Blowfish encryption and decryption algorithm; Blowfish sub-key generation schema, Blowfish algorithm implementation in Java.

Key Schedule (Sub-Keys Generation) Algorithm

Conclusion

- Blowfish is a 64-bit block cipher.
- 18 sub-keys are derived from a single initial key.
- Decryption algorithm is identical to the encryption algorithm except for the order of the round keys.
- Markus Hahn provided a very efficient implementation, BlowfishJ.

**Exercise**: Now the algorithm is here, and the required initialization data
is here, you can try to develop your own implementation in Java.
