On the Security of Modern Cryptography

The security of modern cryptography is based on number-theoretic computations so hard that the problems are practically impossible for attackers to solve. In practice this means that approaches and algorithms to crack the cryptographic algorithms are known but with the current best technologies it would take too many years to complete an attack. 178 more words


What is Cryptology?


Cryptology is the science of making and breaking secret codes. It is the combination of Cryptography and Cryptanalysis.

Cryptology = Cryptography + Cryptanalysis
