What did these two “win” in 2000? Also, tell us who they are.

In the final round, they defeated the entry submitted by the famous MIT prof in 1. 2,3 which were also submitted by uber famous people lost to them.

1. 2. 3.

Answer:

Joan Daemen and Vincent Rijmen’s block cipher encryption algorithm,  “Rijndael” won NIST’s election to become “AES”.

The MIT prof is Ron Rivest. His entry RC6 lost. The others were Serpent(Now widely used for DRM),  TwoFish and MARS.

    AES, Vincent Rijmen, Joan Daemen.

    Being a tech website and all, it’ll be great if ur qs can’t be cracked by image recognition software!


  2. Rey de Vaqueiros

    The two dudes are… wait as I copy from wiki… Joan Daemen and Vincent Rijmen. They won the contest held by NIST to create an “Advanced Encryption Standard” to replace the “Data Encryptionn Standard”. Their entry was called “Rijndael”.

    The bearded guy is Ronald Rivest (of RSA fame). His entry “RC6” lost to “Rijndael”, as also did other entries “Twofish” and “Serpent”.

    Had good fun googling. What’s with the title?


  3. vinod

    Their algorithm for cryptography called “Rijndael” won the AES in 2000.
    Two Belgian cryptographers, Joan Daemen and Vincent Rijmen, and submitted their algorithm to the AES selection process under the name “Rijndael”

    The other pictures are of Ronald Rivest of RSA, two fish and serpent the other algorithms.


  4. Aaaaargh! So close and yet so far …

    The hint is in rot13. Pic 1 is of Ronald Rivest … now to get the rest ..


  5. Ah, finally.

    Joan Daemen and Vincent Rijmen, two Belgians, developed the Rijndael. Rijndael won as the AES in Oct2000, selected by the NIST.

    The other two pics at the bootome are Twofish and Serpent.

    Good question :)

    Joan Daemen & Vincent Rijmen – inventors of Rijndael crypto algorithm (winners of AES).

    1. Ron Rivest – of RSA fame – RC6 was the runners up at AES
    2. TwoFish – a Blowfish variant
    3. Serpent??


  7. piezocake

    Rijmen and Daemen.
    Rijndael won the competition by the US dept. of whatever to become the algo for the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).


  8. priyananda

    AES competition. Joan Daemen,Vincent Rijmen.

    1. Ron Rivest
    2. Two Fish
    3. Serpent


  9. joe

    1 is Ron Rivest. They won the title of Best codes/cryptanalysts?

    Their algorithm – Rijndael – won the right to be called AES, defeating RC6 by Rivest, Twofish, and Serpent.

    The guys are Rijnmen and Daemen (or something like that)


  11. Malcaluffin

    Pix – They are Vincent Rijmen and Joan Daemen, winners of the Advanced Encryption Standard contest.

    Pix1-Ron Rivest, inventor of the RC6 algorithm
    Pix2-Depiction of the TwoFish algorithm
    Pix3-Depiction of the Serpent algorithm

    Fundae:They all were the final 5 \

    Pix – They are Vincent Rijmen and Joan Daemen, winners of the Advanced Encryption Standard contest.
    Pix1-Ron Rivest, inventor of the RC6 algorithm
    Pix2-Depiction of the TwoFish algorithm
    Pix3-Depiction of the Serpent algorithm
    Fundae:They all were the final 5 “AES finalists”, and it was ultimately won by the 2 dudes above who created the Rijndael algorithm.

    Joan Daemen and Vincent Rijmen, developers of the Rijndael cipher.They won the AES competition,as a result of which,Rijndael is now the encryption standard adopted by the US government.

    1.Ron Rivest’s RC6 , 2.Twofish cipher and 3.Serpent cipher were the other finalists.

    The duo are Vincent Rijmen and Joan Daemen. They won the AES competition. Their cipher Rijndael is now the AES Standard.

    1. Ronald Rivest (RSA fame)
    2. Twofish Cipher
    3. Serpent Cipher

    Apart from figuring out that the title says “Yes, this is a hint”, I got nowhere.

    Is it some sort of code-breaking/code-making contest?
