What makes encryption work and how is it different for the older forms of encryption? Those are interesting questions. My Master's degree involved security, so I have a long interest in it.

# Guide to Encryption Algorithm

There are a variety of mathematical algorithms that form the basis of encryption. There are asymmetric encryption algorithms where a private and public key make the encryption and decryption possible. There are also symmetric encryption algorithms where the encryption key and the decryption key have similar features; in fact, they may be the same. The Bright Hub guide to encryption algorithms provides users with a variety of articles that present, discuss, and explain what those algorithms are, how they were created, and how they work. This gives the reader a range of exposure to the intricacies of encryption, and the software that runs them.
