Cryptanalysis is a set of methods to circumvent the security of cryptographic algorithms. It can be applied at different levels: at the assumption level, attacking the computationally-hard problem on which the security of a scheme is based; at the scheme level, attacking the scheme directly when its security is not based on some hard problems (this is the case when specific instances of a hard problems are used) or in symmetric cryptography; finally at the implementation level, when side channel information can be used.

In this talk, I will make a survey of some cryptanalytic techniques and describe my contributions towards this field.
