Cryptography - Input Data (plain text | clear text | message)

Card Puncher Data Processing


Plain text is a text that you want to send.

Plain text is also known as

  • Cleartext
  • Usable text
  • Message

Even if its name contains text, the input can be any piece of data:



You can give a message as input to an cipher function (encryption) that outputs a ciphertext

Signature / Data Integrity

You can give a message as input to an cipher function (encryption) that outputs a hash
