Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 5081)


The talk will recall some basic mathematical problems on analyzing both symmetric and asymmetric ciphers. A special focus will be on the advances in asymmetric ciphers based on the research of some fundamentally hard mathematical problems. Some fundamental statistical problems and cryptanalysis techniques for symmetric cipher will be reviewed as well.
