Internet and networks applications are growing very fast, so the needs to protect such applications are increased. Cryptography refers to the science and art of transforming messages to make them secure and immune to attacks. Cryptography encryption algorithms play a main role in information security systems. Those algorithms consume a significant amount of computing resources. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) initiated a process to select a symmetric-key encryption algorithm to be used to protect sensitive information & in many scenarios, RC6 is the fastest AES finalist. This paper focuses on the analysis of RC6 symmetric encryption algorithm as AES considering certain parameters such as computation time, throughput & power consumption.
