- 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
- Claude Shannon : (1916-2001) A theoretical mathematician and electrical engineer, one of the foundational researchers in computer and communications design.
- Communication : The set of interactive processes that create shared meaning.
- Compression (disambiguation) : Add brief definition or description
- Computer network : A collection of computers or digital devices ("nodes") connected by communication links.
- Computer science : The study of how computers work, and the algorithms, data structures and design principles used in their operation and programming.
- Cryptanalysis : The sub-field of cryptology which deals with breaking into existing codes and ciphers.
- 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
- Electrical engineering : The branch of engineering that deals primarily with electricity and electromagnetism.
- History of computing : How electronic computers were first invented; how the technology underlying them evolved.
- James Clerk Maxwell : (1831 – 1879) Scottish physicist best known for his formulation of electromagnetic theory and the statistical theory of gases.
- Library science : The study of issues related to libraries and the information fields.
- MPEG-1 : One of the earliest practical standards for high quality, low bitrate audio and video compression; includes the MP3 audio format.
- Mathematics : The study of quantities, structures, their relations, and changes thereof.
- Philosophy of science : Philosophical study of the assumptions, foundations, and implications of science.
- Psycholinguistics : Study of the psychological and neurobiological factors that enable humans to acquire, use, comprehend and produce language.
- Signal processing : Extraction of information from complex signals in the presence of noise, generally by conversion of the signals into digital form followed by analysis using various algorithms.
- Signal-to-noise ratio : A dimensionless number expressing the proportion of useful signal in a communications channel, the remaining content being noise. The higher the ratio, the better the quality.
