Confused? Feeling a little lost? Wondering what cryptography even is? And how on earth even concerns you? Well, this section is exactly what the doctor ordered! Here, we go back to the very basics of cryptography.
Crypto-what? is a beginners look into what cryptography is, when it came about and how it evolved through the ages.
A complete collection of crypto-buzzwords (as we like to call them), gives you a firsthand look into the common jargons used in cryptography that you will be encountering over and over again in the site.
Illustrated with simple examples, it provides a better understanding of the underlying concepts. And finally, Crypto and You tells you why cryptography matters to the common man, it's not just another technical concept.
Crypto and You tells you why cryptography matters to the common man, it’s not just another technical concept. Crypto-pillars tells you the principles that govern cryptography and Crypto-tools, the tools you can use for your everyday cryptography needs. And finally the human element shows you how no matter how strong the cryptographic system, one slip up and it’s all history!
Don’t forget to watch the history of cryptography change in front of your very eyes with our interactive timeline!
So sit back and relax, you have nothing to fear!
