WHAT DOES CRYPTOGRAPHY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

cryptography

Cryptography

Cryptography is the practice and study of techniques for secure communication in the presence of third parties. More generally, it is about constructing and analyzing protocols that overcome the influence of adversaries and which are related to various aspects in information security such as data confidentiality, data integrity, authentication, and non-repudiation. Modern cryptography intersects the disciplines of mathematics, computer science, and electrical engineering. Applications of cryptography include ATM cards, computer passwords, and electronic commerce. Cryptography prior to the modern age was effectively synonymous with encryption, the conversion of information from a readable state to apparent nonsense. The originator of an encrypted message shared the decoding technique needed to recover the original information only with intended recipients, thereby precluding unwanted persons to do the same. Since World War I and the advent of the computer, the methods used to carry out cryptology have become increasingly complex and its application more widespread.

Definition of cryptography in the English dictionary

The definition of cryptography in the dictionary is the science or study of analysing and deciphering codes, ciphers, etc; cryptanalysis.

6 QUOTES WITH «CRYPTOGRAPHY»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word cryptography.
1
Julian Assange
Cryptography is the essential building block of independence for organisations on the Internet, just like armies are the essential building blocks of states, because otherwise one state just takes over another.
2
Whitfield Diffie
Lots of people working in cryptography have no deep concern with real application issues. They are trying to discover things clever enough to write papers about.
3
Whitfield Diffie
I thought cryptography was a technique that did not require your trusting other people-that if you encrypted your files, you would have the control to make the choice as to whether you would surrender your files.
4
Whitfield Diffie
I understood the importance in principle of public key cryptography but it's all moved much faster than I expected. I did not expect it to be a mainstay of advanced communications technology.
5
Whitfield Diffie
I think that the people who are trying to shut down WikiLeaks are going to have to accept this as a fact of reality that cryptography allows you to do this kind of thing.
6
James Sanborn
What affected me most profoundly was the realization that the sciences of cryptography and mathematics are very elegant, pure sciences. I found that the ends for which these pure sciences are used are less elegant.
