This lesson focuses on a formula that provides companies with privacy: Plain text + initialization vector + algorithm + key = cipher text. An initialization adds randomness to encryption to produce more randomness and add complexity. An algorithm is a set of math numbers that allows us to substitute one formula for another. There are two types of algorithms:
The lesson concludes by touching on the key; which is the instruction for how the algorithm is used.
