Abstract

This paper gives a brief summary of cryptography, where it is applied and its usage in various forms. Cryptography is a way of safeguarding the crucial data from unauthorized access. It has emerged as a secure means for transmission of information. It mainly helps in curbing intrusion from third party. It provides data confidentiality, integrity, electronic signatures, and advanced user authentication. The methods of cryptography use mathematics for securing the data (encryption and decryption).
