A Data Specific Comparative Study for Choosing Best Cryptographic Technique

Muhammad Usman, Shahid M Awan


Data security has gauged much attention for over a past few decades. Cryptography is one of the most serious domains as far as security is concerned. This article evaluates and compares among few of the well-known state of art cryptographic algorithm like AES, DES and Serpent depending on the nature of data by different authors in different years. Benchmark techniques (True Positive rate, False Positive rate, ROC curves etc) are used to analyze the sensitivity and specificity for the respective algorithms. Paper is concluded with the best possible algorithm that suits a respective dataset.
