Hash functions are the most commonly used mathematical functions in cryptography for implementing security. A hash function converts an input value of any arbitrary...

Cryptography uses symmetric and asymmetric encryption for encryption and decryption of data. In this post, we will be focusing on and discussing asymmetric...

Advanced Encryption Standard short formed as AES falls under the symmetric encryption category. Thus, in AES the sender and the recipient of the data uses...

Cryptography uses symmetric and asymmetric encryption for encryption and decryption of data. If the sender and the recipient of the data use the same key to...

In essence, a password is a cryptographic secret that needs proper storage and management. Even for individual users this can be a difficult task, however,...

In cryptography, a key is a very important piece of information used to combine with an algorithm (a cipher) to transform plaintext into ciphertext (encryption).
The...

In layman’s terms, cryptography is the encryption and decryption of a written or text message between two parties. The practice relies on ciphers — a set...

Encryption is the process of converting plaintext to encrypted text. Since encrypted text cannot be read by anyone, encrypted text hides the original data...

Cryptography is the science of creating codes or keeping this secret. Cryptanalysis is the opposite: the attempt to break the code, gaining unauthorized access...
