Encryption

The coding of sensitive information for transfer online or otherwise electronically. One may encrypt data to prevent anyone other than the intended recipient from accessing it. For example, if one buys a product online and enters credit card information into an electronic form, that information is usually encrypted so hackers and potential identity thieves cannot use it for illicit purposes.

encryption

The manipulation of data to prevent accurate interpretation by all but those for whom the data is intended. Financial institutions use encryption to increase the security of data transmitted via the Internet.

A cipher text policy attribute based signcryption [CP-ABSC] scheme is proposed in [33] for cloud system for storing personal health record which gives access control, confidentiality and integrity of data.
Decryption: Generate the key using similar technique which will generate the same key; depending on the received cipher text length.

You digitally apply a key to plain text to get cipher text.
3) There are not enough schemes designed for both multi-factor and cipher text.
In this scheme the Network Abstraction Layer (NAL) units were extracted from stream and encrypted to make a cipher text. By doing this computational complexity was reduced to some extent but compression efficiency was not improved.
They retrieved plain text bytes from cipher text using single and double bias attacks.
Where [G.sub.c] is the cipher text space and the [??] denotes the encrypted state transition function and [??] denotes the encrypted initial state.
G uses the key [K.sub.S-G] to encrypt M, and the obtained cipher text is
Some mathematical operations are then performed to generate cipher text from plain text with the use of key and initialized vector.
