Cryptography is an invisible safety guard of people. The word originates from Greek words kryptós and graphein, and each of them means “secret” and “writing”. Cryptography through long history has been brought us different benefits. What cryptography basically does is to keep information secured from others. The most typical example for this is cryptosystem during wars. When World War II occurred, both Allies and German put large amount of resources to build cryptosystem because some actually telegrams decide the outcome of a war. The Enigma, which is the cryptosystem of German, was once considered as not decipherable. The process of decryption was so dramatic that it is made as a movie “The Imitation Game”.
