In our world as we know, the important role played by self-presentation, how we say what we say, then, as we write, our skills, abilities, intelligence, and much more. One of these main parts as is the significance of words. Sometimes we represent the meaning of the MyWebSearch word is not so, what it really is. Recently while surfing on the internet I noticed some words that use the authors of the articles, but there is an impression that they do not understand what the meaning of words they use. For example, often confuse the words "encryption" and "encoding". Two completely different words, but in the article about encryption, the main reason the term is replaced by the coding. The same mistakes and being seen in the literature, especially the not so new (s, a kind, 60-70).
For those who want to be a worthy and respected member of the sphere of information security, should read this article. Here we go! "Encryption" and "Encoding" - what's the catch? Encryption - the process of transforming information to hide the semantic component of this information. Coding - process of transforming information into another more convenient form for perform some operations: the generation, storage, transmission and processing. As you can see, the encoding process does not mean by a hidden meaning, which is information. Cryptography, on the contrary, in order and designed that would conceal the true meaning of information. Often it is the "encryption" is confused with "encoding", and not vice versa. Be careful! "Decryption" and "Decrypt". Two, apparently, the same words by meaning.
However, If we think, the difference is obvious! Both these terms have the same meaning - the semantic component of the restore encrypted data, the only difference is that "decryption" conducted by renowned key and "Decrypt" without him. Accordingly, the "Decrypt" = "Hacking". Sometimes it is very interesting to hear how people decrypt your own password. A few words about the term 'key': Often in American literature can be found several key designations, namely salt, tag, tweak, secret key. Reading the translations of members of the forum, often wonder, and whether they should believe, if the word salt, in a purely cryptographic text translated as 'salt'? So: Salt - the term is used in the Windows / Unix systems to identify 'hashed password'. Tag - used to mean 'hashed data on the Internet. " Tweak - slang used in a Windows / Unix systems. Secret key - pure professionalism, as used in the environment of cryptology. Do not confuse words, and remember that it affects your . Good luck to you! ;).
