This document describes the specification of the blockcipher
CLEFIA.  CLEFIA is a 128-bit blockcipher, with key lengths of 128,
192, and 256 bits, which is compatible with the interface of the
Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).  The algorithm of CLEFIA was 
published in 2007, and its security has been scrutinized in the public 
community.  CLEFIA is one of the new-generation lightweight blockcipher 
algorithms designed after AES.  Among them, CLEFIA offers high 
performance in software and hardware as well as lightweight 
implementation in hardware.  CLEFIA will be of benefit to
the Internet, which will be connected to more distributed and constrained
devices.  This document is not an Internet Standards Track specification; 
it is published for informational purposes.
