In Cryptography, Block Cipher is an algorithm used to encode the data which is used to transfer over internet. Cryptanalyst tries to break secret code by using different methods like Brute Force attack, Linear Cryptanalysis and differential cryptanalysis etc. The basic aim of this bibliometric survey is to understand the extent of the available literature for the area of cryptanalysis of block ciphers towards cyber security. The bibliometric analysis is primarily based on Scopus as it provides research database for various areas and tools like Sciencescape, Gephi etc. It is analyzed by bibliometric survey that major publications are from conference, journals and articles from Chinese publications, followed by India and United States. The time series dataset started from 2004 to till date. The most of the research publication is by the subject areas of Computer Science followed by Engineering and Mathematics.
