Special Report: History of Cryptography

Internet as an insecure channel for exchanging information with a high risk of intrusion or fraud, such as phishing, is no longer the predominant notion with the present encryption revolutions. Encryption is the process of encoding messages or information in such a way that only authorized parties can read it, which invariably reduces the likelihood that an intruder will be able to read the data.

This special report presents a brief history of cryptography and how encryption-related technologies have evolved and will continue to evolve as well as the measures Internet users should consider when implementing modern encryption.

The development of cryptography, paralleled by the development of cryptanalysis (breaking of codes and ciphers) and the discovery and application of frequency analysis to the reading of encrypted communications represent a changing point in history.
