- AES competition : A competition run by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology to chose a block cipher to become the Advanced Encryption Standard.
- Advanced Encryption Standard : A US government standard issued in 2002 for a stronger block cipher to succeed the earlier Data Encryption Standard.
- Advanced Encryption System : An encryption system, selected by the U.S. government after a public review process, that is a stronger replacement for the Data Encryption Standard
- Block cipher : A symmetric cipher that operates on fixed-size blocks of plaintext, giving a block of ciphertext for each
- Brute force attack : An attempt to break a cipher by trying all possible keys; long enough keys make this impractical.
- Cipher : A means of combining plaintext (of letters or numbers, or bits), using an algorithm that mathematically manipulates the individual elements of plaintext, into ciphertext, a form unintelligible to any recipient that does not know both the algorithm and a randomizing factor called a cryptographic key
- Cryptography controversy : The "crypto wars", political controversies and legal cases involving the use of cryptography.
- Cryptography : A field at the intersection of mathematics and computer science that is concerned with the security of information, typically the confidentiality, integrity and authenticity of some message.
- Cryptology : The theory and practice of protecting the content of communications, and of defeating the protective measures
- DEAL (cipher) : A block cipher derived from the Data Encryption Standard (DES), from a design proposed in a report by Lars Knudsen in 1998.
- DES (disambiguation) : Add brief definition or description
- GOST cipher : A Soviet and Russian government standard symmetric key block cipher; also based on this block cipher is the GOST hash function.
- Hash (cryptography) : An algorithm that produces a fixed-size digest from an input of essentially arbitrary size.
- History of cryptography : The development, since antiquity, of means of concealing communications from other than the intended recipient
- Intelligence cycle management : The continuous process by which intelligence priorities are set, raw information collected, information analyzed, the processed information disseminated, and the next set or priorities set.
- LOKI (cipher) : Block ciphers (LOKI89 and LOKI91) designed as possible replacements for the Data Encryption Standard (DES).
- National Security Agency : An organization within the United States Department of Defense, with the dual roles of the principal signals intelligence agency in the United States intelligence community, but also having the responsibility for information assurance of military, diplomatic, and other critical communications.
- Signals intelligence from 1990 to the present : Technology and history of signals intelligence from 1990 to the present time
- Symmetric key cryptography : A cryptographic system in which there is only one key; the same secret key is used for encryption and decryption.
- Triple DES : The common name for the Triple Data Encryption Algorithm (TDEA) block cipher, named because it applies the Data Encryption Standard (DES) cipher algorithm three times to each data block.
- United States intelligence community : The United States' intelligence agencies coordinated by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
