What is Cryptography

Cryptography is the study and practice of scrambling information in a manner that makes it difficult to unscramble, and makes scrambled information intelligible. It is used as the basis for much computer security in that it can keep information confidential, and can also preserve the integrity of data, particularly when being stored or transmitted.
