I have been reading about attacks and many of them work on specific rounds of TripleDES but not on full TripleDES. Is there any attack except brute force that works on full TripleDES? (theoretical)

There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Why don't you provide your list? Maybe even as a community wiki answer, so that other can contribute. – Artjom B. Jul 18 '14 at 8:42
no contribution at all!!! Is their something wrong with the question? – Giliweed Jul 18 '14 at 16:21
I voted to close as too broad. At the very least you should limit it to one or the other. Something like "what is the currently best (theoretical) attack on AES" could be OK. (Possibly ruling out related-key attacks if you don't find them to be very interesting.) – otus Jul 18 '14 at 19:38
Thanks for pointing it out. I think now I should edit it or delete it. But please don't close it. – Giliweed Jul 19 '14 at 1:06
