ABSTRACT Researchers attention on the optimization methods to solve several applications increases recently by the advances in the technological field. The Artificial Bee Colony algorithm that has been quite popular during the recent years is firstly used in this study to cryptanalyse the substitution cipher that is the fundamental structure of the modern cryptology methods. Artificial Bee Colony algorithm searches for the key used for encryption phase and it is aimed to obtain the decrypted text by the key discovered. Various number of texts and population sizes are examined to obtain the original key by using the character frequency analysis. Consequently, from the results, the Artificial Bee Colony Algorithm displays good performance for cryptanalysis application in substitution cipher.
