AES Encryption Surrounds Us; We Surround AES Encryption

Orhun Kara, İzmir Institute of Technology . Date: 31th of January, 2024, Wednesday, Time: 10.30 – 12.00. Place: Dokuz Eylül Univ., Tınaztepe Campus, Faculty of Science, Department of Mathematics, Room B206 (Online-Sakai-Graduate Meetings).


The NIST Advanced Encryption Standard, AES, is without doubt the most used encryption algorithm all over the world. AES supplies confidentiality in almost all the ubiquitous cryptographic protocols including Whatsapp security, TLS, WPA. In this talk, we introduce algebraic aspects and the design philosophy of AES. Moreover, we try to convince the audience that AES appears sufficiently secure to protect our data by presenting supporting security evidence and introducing some unsuccessful attack attempts.
