- Asymmetric key cryptography : A category of cryptographic techniques, which greatly simplify key management, which are based on mathematically related key pairs, such that the "public" key can be used to encrypt and be freely available, and only the holder of the "private" key can decrypt the message
- Cryptographic key : Value used by a computer together with a complex algorithm to encrypt and decrypt messages.
- 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.
- Digital certificate : A means by which the user of a public key can obtain it from a central repository, with high confidence that key is correct and has not been revoked
- Email : A method of composing, sending, storing, and receiving messages over electronic communication systems.
- 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
- IPsec : Internet Protocl security is a set of protocols for providing encryption and/or authentication services for Internet packets.
- Man-in-the-middle attack : An attack on a communications system in which the attacker deceives the communicating parties so they both talk to him while believing they are talking to each other.
- Pretty Good Privacy : E-mail encryption package created by Phillip Zimmerman.
- RSA algorithm : A widely used public key encryption algorithm whose strength depends on the difficulty of integer factorisation.
