Hot answers tagged permutation
In the substitution step of a typical Substitution-Permutation Network (e.g. in AES SubBytes), the whole state is broken in parts and each part substituted. That's not the case in (the core of) a Feistel cipher, where at each step/round some sizable part of the state is bound to remain unchanged (in order that each step be reversible).
