'Encryption' transforms information into a secret code, obscuring its true meaning using cryptography. It's a fundamental aspect of securing data.

In computing, plaintext becomes unreadable cipher text through encryption. Using keys in encryption algorithms ensures unique outputs, vital for secure communication.

Encryption's role is crucial in safeguarding information in scenarios like internet banking and shopping, protecting data from unauthorized access.
