What is Encryption?

Encryption is your best friend and keeps all your secrets intact!

The Evolution of Encryption

img

Encryption has played its part since 700 BC when the Spartan military used it to convey sensitive messages on strips of leather during wars. In 1467 Alberti Cipher changed the course of encryption by including alphabets and variable rotations, making it difficult to decrypt sensitive data.

Soon encryption became the most commonly used medium to send messages during times of war. The birth of Enigma Machine reformed the course of communicating securely.

With rapid advancements in technology, focus shifted towards online hacking and manipulating of information for personal gains. That’s where encryption comes in place to safeguard users’ data.

Hackers, cybercriminals and third-parties are working around-the-clock to get a hold of your private information that you share on the internet. With encryption, your communications are transformed into codes that only become meaningful once received by the intended recipient.

How Does Encryption Work?

Encryption uses a secure key for encryption and decryption. The sender and receiver must share the common key in order to decrypt and make sense of the information. Without the encryption key, the data holds no value to a hacker who obtained by intercepting the communication channel.

In encryption, a mathematical algorithm scrambles your data into a cipher form, turning it into gibberish form. A key is then required to make sense of that information.

Types of Encryption

Encryption protects your emails, banking transactions and online messages. It’s the best way to protect your online data from malicious spies, hackers and online criminals.In today’s digital world, the integrity of encryption is determined by the key size of the encryption provided. There are numerous types of encryption and no matter how robust their algorithms, they are susceptible to brute forces, DDoS attacks, etc. Although, deciphering the data could take a millennia, mathematical advancements may gradually decrease these times. This is the reason why information, such as your credit card number, email details, and social media accounts need to be kept secure for a longer period of time, maybe forever. Here are the types of encryption and their strengths:

  • img

    Data Encryption Standard (DES)

    DES, popular in the 1970s, provides 56-bit key encryption. It was originally used by the US government as well as businesses. The encryption type is considered obsolete. However, it is still used in many commercial products and is considered acceptable for lower security applications.

    RC4, RC5, and RC6

    This is an encryption algorithm developed by the RSA, the first commercial application for public key cryptography. Since then, many developments have been introduced to make it stronger and fix bugs. The current version, RC6, allows up to a 2,040-bit key size and a variable block size of up to 128 bits.

    AES

    AES, aka Advanced Encryption Standard, is the most widely used encryption algorithm. The birth of AES was due to a combination of efforts by leading online security experts. AES has rapidly lived up to its reputation as the most secure and best standard for encryption..

    It offers up to a 256-bit cipher key, which is more than enough to withstand any and every type of intrusion attempt. PureVPN employs strict AES 256-bit military-grade encryption for supreme confidentiality of users’ information.

Why Should I Use Encryption

Encryption can go a long way in protecting your information against malicious entities. Here are situations where encryption will live up to its reputation:

  • img

    Protecting sensitive information if your data is stolen

    In an event where your device is stolen, encryption will stop the criminal from booting up your device and browsing through your intricate information such as financial details, passwords, pictures, etc.

  • img

    Saving or sharing sensitive data online

    If you’ve got sensitive data stored such as tax documents, social security number, credit report and you’re sharing it with a government body, using encryption will secure your transfer of such sensitive data and keep it safe from cybercriminals.

  • img

    Protection of business records

    Numerous commercial and home-based businesses employ encryption to secure their businesses’ secrets against their competitors. This may include cash flows, earnings per share and advancements in research and development. Encryption will secure the flow of communication and files shared with peers.
