Full Title

General resource site for Cryptography.


  • Cryptography originally meant Secret Writing and was use by Caesar in his communications from the Gallic wars. Since then it has become a category of mathematics dealing with methods that are easy to invoke and difficult to discover. Commercial Cryptography is involved in:
  1. protecting data from disclosure (its original purpose) and
  2. assuring the source or integrity of messages.
