Encryption... That enigmatic word the media, governments, politicians, agencies, and various organizations have been discussing for quite some time. Should we all use encryption? Is encryption dangerous? Should we ban encryption? But we at Secure Group bet that many people caught in this discussion would actually fail to answer the single most important question about it. Namely, what is encryption?
