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


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

Cryptography - (Ciphertext|cyphertext|Message Digest|Digest)

In cryptography, ciphertext or cyphertext is the result of encryption performed on plaintext using an algorithm, called a cipher. In the context of hashing / data integrity, the cyphertext is known...
Cryptography - Algorithm (called a Cipher)

A cipher is an algorithm that encrypt a plain text message into a ciphertext. Cipher algorithm can be categorized by the key that they used as parameters. No key symmetric one (using one key) ...
Cryptography - Decryption (Deciphering)

A process from a cipher that transforms encrypted data into the original usable data
Cryptography - Encryption (Enciphering)

Encryption is the function of a cipher that transforms usable data into an unreadable form. It provides confidentiality if a secret is used in the encryption. There is two class of encryption. ...

Cryptography - Hash

A hash function is an encryption crypto algorithm that takes as data as input (possibly large and of variable-sized) and produces a short fixed-length integer value (generally printed as an hexadecimal...
Cryptography - Key

A key is a parameter used in a cipher algorithm that determines: the encryption operation (forward) and the decryption operation (backward). It's the only secret parameter that protect the anonymity...
Cryptography - Message Digest (checksum|hash) (sha1|md5)

A message digest is the output of hash function (also known as a checksum). The input is known as the message (ie a piece of data: file, payload). It is used to verify that the data has not been altered...
