26 February 2018: Although I cryptanalyzed ciphers designed by others all this time, for the first time in my life, as a part of my research at RUB with Gregor Leander, I designed a block cipher. Silent Encryption Decryption Algorithm is the first cipher that is designed specifically for GPU architecture. Click here for the SILENT cipher page.
03 April 2017: I am currently on leave until 2018. I am doing post-doctoral research at RUHR Universitat Bochum, Germany with Gregor Leander's Symmetric Cryptography Group.
I hold a permanent researcher position at Department of Mathematics, Middle East Technical University at Ankara, Turkey. I am also an affiliated faculty at Department of Cyber Security, Institute of Informatics and Department of Cryptography, Institute of Applied Mathematics. I have left Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) and I am no longer using my EPFL email address (I also returned from Bochum, please do not send anything to my German postal address).
During my MS and PhD studies, I focused mainly on block cipher cryptanalysis and I discovered the Improbable Differential Cryptanalysis. I provided the best known attacks on the block ciphers HIGHT (standardized at South Korea), CLEFIA (developed by SONY Corporation), and SERPENT (AES candidate). During my PhD studies at EPFL I did reasearch on provable security under the supervision of Prof. Serge Vaudenay and on GHS attack and genus 2 curves under the supervision of Prof. Arjen Lenstra.
