Block Cipher is an encryption algorithm that works with a symmetric key in a deterministic way. The plain text is divided into several blocks of equal size. If the length of the plain text does not allow block division of equal size, padding is done over the plain text. His type of encryption method can encrypt on blocks of 128 bits, the key can be 128, 192, or 256 bits. In block ciphers, the length of the plain text is equal to the length of the cipher text. This type of encryption process considered each block at a time and ... Read More

Encryption, its Algorithms and its Future

Updated on 03-May-2023 11:34:11


Encryption is a method to protect the incoming message by coding the plain text into an encoded one called the cipher text. The main ideology behind encryption is to protect the data transmitted to be secured from any type of attack. There are typically two types of encryptions namely symmetric and asymmetric encryption methods. In this, the encryption algorithm comes under the components of encryption. Decryption is a process of getting the plain text from the encoded text using an encryption key. Encryption Cryptography involves both encryption and decryption, to prevent the data from unauthorized access. The Components of Encryption ... Read More
