Welcome to Cryptography.

Cryptography can be classified into three areas:

  • Classical - before the 20th century, simple substitution and transposition ciphers played major roles
  • Modern - mechanized and digitized cryptography came into existance in the 20th century
  • Key exchanges - Public Key and Quantum cryptography
    • Diffie-Hellman key exchange and RSA in the last few decades has enabled mass secure transmissions and internet transactions
    • Quantum Cryptography - As quantum computers come into existance, algorithms and protocols are fast being developed for this new platform.
