    It is better to solve an assignment/ a course related questions by yourself. Read your study books minutely and you will get answers from there!

    The art of protecting information by transforming it into an unreadable format. Only those who possess a secret can decipher the message into plain text. Encrypted messages can sometimes be broken bycryptanalysis, also called codebreaking, although modern cryptography techniques are virtually unbreakable.
