Summary: We present a single-key length doubler built on an \(n\)-bit tweakable block cipher (SLDT), which is a length-preserving cipher on the strings with bit length in integer interval \(\left[n,n+1,\ldots,2n-1\right]\). SLDT is mainly motivated to reduce the key material size of a length doubler proposed by Y.-L. Chen et al. at FSE 2018 [Efficient length doubling from tweakable block ciphers. IACR Trans. Symmetric Cryptol. 2017, No. 3, 253–270 (2017), doi:0.13154/tosc.v2017.i3.253-270], since the key management is always challenging in practice. We prove that SLDT is a strong pseudo-random permutation (SPRP) if the underlying tweakable block cipher is SPRP.
