Nicky Mouha is a researcher at the Computer Security Division of NIST (USA), a member of crypto standartization committees at NIST, ISO/IEC JTC1 SC27, and ASC X9F; a co-author of the Triple DES (3DES) standard, which is one of only two block ciphers that are approved for use by the U.S. government. Nicky is well known as the designer of the Chaskey algorithm and as the inventor of the MILP and SAT-based techniques that have now become the standard tools to analyze the security of cryptographic algorithms against statistical attacks.
