Cryptology is an art and science of hidden or secret writing. It has two main areas: cryptography and cryptanalysis. Cryptography is basically related with converting data to make them secure and immune to attacks where cryptanalysis is related with breaking of codes. This talk will present a perspective on various techniques which are currently used for cryptanalysis purpose. This paper mainly focuses on various types of attacks which are mainly in use, in particular attacks on symmetric cipher, asymmetric cipher, and hash system. Also on classification of attacks and side channel attacks.
