Definition Edit

Cryptography controls include

encryption of data during transmission and when it is stored on a system. Encryption is the process of transforming ordinary data into a code form so that the information is accessible only to those who are authorized to have access. Two applications of cryptography are virtual private networks and digital signatures and certificates.[1]
