It was probably the first CI technique applied to cryptology. </p><p> Many works show good results compared to classical methods. </p><p> Several search models were used together to find the bits of a secret key (better exploration of the search space). </p><p> Some works were able to find the input parameters to other CI techniques (e.g. finding appropriate differences between plaintext and ciphertext pairs to decrease the time of differential attack). </p><p> By contrast, only a few works propose the application of this technique on cryptography (mainly to construct stronger S-boxes). </p></li><li><p>Evolutive Computation and Cryptology </p><p>CI applied on cryptology 10 </p><p> Ant Colony Optimization </p><p> This technique is inspired on ant behaviour (mainly in its highest capacity: the </p><p>search for food). </p><p> The ants are able to find the shortest path between the nest and the food even if </p><p>one obstacle exists in the path. </p></li><li><p>55 56 </p><p>Evolutive Computation and Cryptology </p><p>CI applied on cryptology 11 </p><p> Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) </p><p> Khan, Shahzad and Khan applied this approach to find the key in </p><p>the cryptanalysis of Four-Rounded DES. </p><p>An ant completes its path by making </p><p>decisions using heuristic based on </p><p>pheromone found on the way. Each </p><p>completed path represents a possible trial </p><p>key to the problem. </p><p>This is a binary model where the ants </p><p>need to choose 56 times between 0 and </p><p>1. </p></li><li><p>Cellular Automata and Cryptology </p><p>CI applied on cryptology 12 </p><p> CA is suitable to construct cryptosystems or part of them. Wolfram was the first to appoint the possibility of using CA in </p><p>cryptography. </p><p> Probably, the best use for CA in cryptology is the generation of random numbers. </p><p> The choice of evolution rules was indicated by Bao as the main challenge of CA in cryptology. </p><p> New works are looking for new CA applications in cryptography (see the work by Tardivo and Henriques in this conference). </p></li><li><p>DNA Computing and Cryptology </p><p>CI applied on cryptology 13 </p><p> This is the only technique with the same level of </p><p>applications in cryptography and cryptanalysis. </p><p> Theoretical results showed that the super-parallelism </p><p>achieved by DNA Computing has great potential in </p><p>cryptology (works of Boneh et al. and Adleman). </p><p> Some researchers identified potential to apply DNA on </p><p>One-Time Pad (OTP) schema using the high storage </p><p>capacity (one trillion CDs one DNA gram) as showed </p><p>by Hirabayashi et al. </p></li><li><p>DNA Computing and Cryptology </p><p> Hirabayashi et al schema: </p><p>CI applied on cryptology 14 </p><p>Secret key generation using the physical </p><p>random process of DNA assembly. </p><p>Random key generation is obtained by </p><p>connection of each key tile, which has a </p><p>value of zero or one with probability = 0.5. </p></li><li><p>Looking at the Future </p><p> Remembering the Past </p><p>CI applied on cryptology 15 </p><p> We can define the 1990s as the best time for CI applications on cryptology. </p><p> Many works were developed using almost all known CI techniques. </p><p> Good results obtained with classical cryptosystems. </p><p> However, in the last 10 years, the number of CI applications in cryptology decreased because of: </p><p> Few substantial results in modern ciphers; </p><p> Difficulties in representing the problem in terms of CI; </p><p> The poor interaction between researchers of cryptology and CI. </p></li><li><p>Looking at the Future </p><p> New Possibilities </p><p>CI applied on cryptology 16 </p><p> We believe that exists potential in CI techniques for cryptology. CI techniques have been improved and new aspects have been </p><p>incorporated into them. </p><p> There is more computational power available (generally, the CI tools need a lot of it). </p><p> New concepts and ideas emerged in cryptology and they can be used with CI tools. In cryptography: </p><p> chaotic theory, lattice-based algorithms </p><p> In cryptanalysis: </p><p> new types of attacks have been created (e. g. biclique on AES, lattice-based algorithms, algebraic methods etc); </p><p> the known attacks have been refined (e. g. differential approach and its several sub-models). </p></li><li><p>The Future of CI and Cryptology </p><p> New Vision </p><p>CI applied on cryptology 17 </p><p> According to our studies, there are new opportunities for </p><p>CI application in cryptology (hypothesis). </p><p> We believe that CI techniques can help create more robust </p><p>ciphers. </p><p> We can use CI techniques to improve parts of attacks done by </p><p>other techniques (most of the works used CI in the entire attack </p><p>process, but CI techniques normally can be more efficient if used </p><p>only in some parts of the attack). </p><p> Problems with mapping and representation of CI techniques </p><p>can get a new perspective as more researchers start to pay </p><p>attention to this kind of problems. </p><p> New ideas will certainly emerge. </p></li><li><p>The Future of CI and Cryptology </p><p> New Vision </p><p>CI applied on cryptology 18 </p><p> Generally, the works applied only one CI technique Hybrid methods, combining two or more techniques, could </p><p>be explored further to deal with the complexity involved in cryptology. </p><p> CI could be used together with new kinds of mathematical and statistical attacks against block ciphers, as AES and SERPENT, to improve these attacks and make them more efficient. Some ANNs are known as universal approximation tools </p><p>and they could be to used to approximate results of some crypto functions decreasing the complexity of algebraic attacks. </p></li><li><p>Conclusions </p><p>CI applied on cryptology 19 </p><p> CI tools have been used successfully in many areas. However, due to the mapping difficulties and the unsatisfactory results found when they are applied to modern ciphers, the cryptology community moved away from CI techniques. </p><p> Based on new discovers in cryptology, mainly in cryptanalysis (new attacks on AES and hash functions, for example), and on the evolution of CI techniques, we believe that there are good opportunities to explore in this frontier. </p><p> Our work is aimed at obtaining new good results from cryptanalysis based on CI and catch again the attention of cryptologists to this area. </p></li><li><p>Acknowledgments: </p><p>CI applied on cryptology 20 </p></li><li><p> Thank you! </p><p>Questions? </p><p> msdanziger@yahoo.com.br </p><p> msdanziger@gmail.com </p><p> danziger@dca.fee.unicamp.br </p><p>CI applied on cryptology 21 </p></li></ul>
