Cryptography - A Technical Review

Authors(1) :-Shobha Bhatt

This paper presents a technical review on cryptography. The paper starts with different goals of security. Modern cryptography techniques such as symmetric key, asymmetric key were discussed. The hash function and digital signature were explored. A comparative list of different methods for implementation of cryptosystem was presented with merits and demerits. For the deep understanding of cryptography, important concepts which are widely used were summarized. Further essential subset of knowledge required for cryptography described . As random numbers play very important role in cryptography. Use of random numbers in cryptography explained. A modest effort has been made to cover maximum important aspects related to cryptography. Finally studies were concluded with the importance of cryptography and related issues. This research work will definitely help new researchers to understand various concepts of cryptography.
