Video Description

The algorithms of encryption This lesson covers encryption. Encryption is the process of taking data that is in clear text and changing it to and changing it into cypher text. Cypher text is the goal, what we want to send over the network and where we want to store sensitive data. Encryption and decryption is accomplished via mathematical algorithms, many of which are based randomly generated prime numbers. Typically, the algorithm stays the same, it's the key that changes.
