Origin: [Of uncertain origin; perhaps through OF. fr. carcharus a kind of dogfish, Gr. karchari`as, so called from its sharp teeth, fr. ka`rcharos having sharp or jagged teeth; or perhaps named from its rapacity (cf. Shark, v. t. & i.); cf. Corn. scarceas.]
In cryptography, SHARK is a block cipher identified as one of the predecessors of Rijndael. SHARK has a 64-bit block size and a 128-bit key size. It is a six round SP-network which alternates a key mixing stage with linear and non-linear transformation layers. The linear transformation uses an MDS matrix representing a Reed-Solomon error correcting code in order to guarantee good diffusion. The nonlinear layer is composed of eight 8×8-bit S-boxes based on the function F(x) = x−1 over GF. Five rounds of a modified version of SHARK can be broken using an interpolation attack.
