Excellence in Mathematics
Prof. Eli Biham, Isreal Dr. Mitsuru Matsui, Japan
Groundbreaking work on the cryptanalysis of symmetric-key ciphers The committee proposes to confer the award on two scientists, Prof. Eli Biham (Israel) and Dr. Mitsuru Matsui (Japan), for their groundbreaking work on the cryptanalysis of symmetric-key ciphers. Biham co-discovered the technique of differential cryptanalysis with Adi Shamir in the late 1980s, while Matsui introduced the technique of linear cryptanalysis in 1993.
