Block Ciphers

    Project Details

    Description

    Block ciphers are a class of symmetric
    cryptosystems used for secure
    communications. The project examines
    the strength of various types of
    block ciphers using generalizations of
    linear cryptanalysis and a new
    approach called the interpolation attack.
    Moreover, relations between coding theory
    and cryptography are
    investigated, e.g., the connection between
    the theory of S-boxes used
    in block ciphers and the theory of linear codes.
    The project also examines some complexity
    theory related issues
    concerning cryptography.
