The internet is a great source of information for many people. The information is readily available and it is often free. It’s also easy to get a lot of it wrong and it is easy to make a lot of assumptions about what is going on.
Spe crypto isn’t for the uninitiated. It’s for those who want to be able to access the internet securely. This is because most of the internet is vulnerable to some of the most common attacks. They are usually attacks that rely on the internet’s very own security features. For some of these attacks to be successful they need to be able to break open the encryption and be able to read the contents of the encrypted message being sent.
Spe crypto is what you do when you’re in the privacy of your own home. You encrypt your data and store it in a secret, encrypted, offical data format. Then you use a key, which is a piece of code that you will need to decrypt the data to get at the data in the first place. The key is then used to encrypt data, again.
You can’t really get much more private than this.
Spe crypto is basically the same as a person with a second brain. You take the data you want to encrypt and then you use a key to encrypt it. The key then decrypts the encrypted data with the secret key. Then you compare the decrypted data with the original encrypted data, which you now know is the data you want to encrypt.
Spe crypto is just like the old joke about using a coin in a coin to tell how many coins are in a piece of paper. I can’t imagine how stupid this joke is, but it makes for a pretty damn good joke.
It is pretty clever. I mean, it’s a coin in a coin. But the basic idea still applies. If I want to have the most security, then I should ask my computer to encrypt a file. Then I should use that computer to decrypt the file with my secret key. Then I want to compare the decrypted data with the original encrypted data. And voilà! I’ve just found out the password for the file I wanted to encrypt and can now decrypt the file.
Its a very cool way to keep all of your credentials secret. However, I think the problem is the analogy. If I’m storing my credentials secret with my computer, I’m storing my credentials with my computer with the secret key. So instead of the password being like a key, it’s like a key+password, and rather than comparing the two files, I’m just comparing the two files stored in my key.
So I guess the analogy is to use a passphrase in your keypassword.
I think this is the coolest way to encrypt a file. You get all the benefits of using a key, plus the ability to encrypt it on your computer. Like using the word “crypt” but using the word “cryptography.” If Im storing my credentials secret with my computer, Im storing my credentials with my computer with the secret key.
