Midori128 is a lightweight block cipher proposed at ASIACRYPT 2015 to achieve low energy consumption per bit. Currently, the best published impossible differential attack on Midori128 covers 10 rounds without the pre-whitening key. By exploiting the special structure of the S-boxes and the binary linear transformation layer in Midori128, we present impossible differential distinguishers that cover 7 full rounds including the mix column operations. Then, we exploit four of these distinguishers to launch multiple impossible differential attack against 11 rounds of the cipher with the pre-whitening and post-whitening keys.
