This paper studies the properties and constructions of nonlinear Boolean functions, which are a core component of cryptographic primitives including data encryption algorithms and one-way hash functions. A main contribution of this paper is to completely characterise the structures of cryptographic functions that satisfy the propagation criterion with respect to all but six or less vectors.
