Summary: In this paper basic properties of APN permutations, which can be used in an iterated secret-key block cipher as a round function to protect it from a differential cryptanalysis, are investigated. Several classes of almost perfect nonlinear permutations and other permutations in $$\text{GF}(2)^n$$ with good nonlinearity and high nonlinear order are presented. Also included here are three methods for constructing permutations with good nonlinearity.
