What it does
Converts your password into encrypted text
How we built it
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Learned about cryptography and simple ciphers like Caesar Cipher and Vigenere Cipher
What we learned
-TYPES Cryptography is classified into symmetric cryptography, asymmetric cryptography and hashing.
1.Symmetric key cryptography –It involves usage of one secret key along with encryption and decryption algorithms which help in securing the contents of the message.
2.Assymetric key cryptography –It is also known as public key cryptography because it involves usage of a public key along with secret key.
3.Hashing –It involves taking the plain-text and converting it to a hash value of fixed size by a hash function.
-ABOUT CIPHER USED The Vigenere Cipher follows its name from a French cryptographer Blaise de Vigenere. This cipher is a substitution cipher that supports encryption and decryption of only alphabetic text.There is a Vigenere’s Table which is responsible for encrypting the plaintext with the help of a key.
