Cellular Automaton is an idealized parallel processing machine which is an array (1-D, 2-D) of numbers or symbols called cell values together with an updating rule. A cell value is updated based on this updating rule, which involves the cell value as well as other cell values in a particular neighborhood. A fundamental objective of cryptography is to enable two people to communicate over an insecure channel (a public channel such as internet) in such a way that any other person is unable to recover their message (called the plaintext) from what is sent in its place over the channel (the cipher text).
