It was wanted a successor for DES and AES (Rijndael) was preferred to other four candidates, namely MARS, RC6, Serpent and Twofish. The factors that contributed to its election are similar with the criteria used for testing any software and hardware product. More exactly, the decision was made based on the scores obtained by combining the used criteria.
A famous draw that is reproduced below was included by Jeff Moser in his work called “A Stick Figure Guide to the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)” (Moser J.)...
