Comparative Study of Different Symmetric Key Cryptography Algorithms
Cryptography is the practice and study of hiding information. Prior to the modern age, cryptography was almost synonymous with encryption i.e. the conversion of information from a readable state to nonsense. In order to avoid unwanted persons being able to read the information, senders retain the ability to decrypt the information. There are three type of Cryptography: Asymmetric-key cryptography, symmetric key cryptography and hashing. Encryption methods in which both the sender and receiver share the same key are referred to as symmetric key cryptography.
