Özet : Cryptology provides us with such a powerful and constantly improving toolbox that can give us security, privacy and trust in ever precarious cyber world and protect us against cyber attacks and frauds therein. Their correct and secure deployment in real life applications, however, poses serious technical challenges and requires deep expertise in many areas such as mathematics, computer science, electrical engineering and others. In this talk, we present an overview of new trends in cryptology and investigate its vital role and impact in our lives. In particular, we discuss the possible outcomes of the increased use and importance of cryptology in emerging applications and their disruptive effects. While we provide examples of such advanced applications such as homomorphic cryptography, software obfuscation and blockchain we also give our perspective on current challenges such as side-channel attacks and quantum attacks. Finally, we share our viewpoint about the possible future directions and focus areas for research and development in cryptology.
