While ecurit i an aerthought for man PC uer, it a major priorit for
uinee of an ize. It ha to e when the Ponemon Intute

There are everal form of ecurit technolog availale, ut encrpon i one

How Encryption Works


ncrpon i an intereng piece of technolog that work cramling data o

email-friendl oware PGP (hp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pre_Good_Privac)

(or GPG (hp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_Privac_Guard) for ou open ource


people).

1. Triple DES

Triple D (hp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triple_D) wa deigned to replace the


original Data ncrpon tandard (D) algorithm, which hacker eventuall
learned to defeat with relave eae. At one me, Triple D wa the
recommended tandard and the mot widel ued mmetric algorithm in the
indutr.
Triple D ue three individual ke with 56 it each. The total ke length add
up(/#xing)
to 168 it, ut expert would argue that 112-it in ke trength i more like

it.

2. RSA

It alo happen to e one of the method ued in our PGP and GPG program.

Unlike Triple D, RA i conidered an ammetric algorithm due to it ue of a
