Handy Backup / Support / Backup Terms Glossary / Encryption / Backup Terms: Cipher
Cipher is the generic term used to describe a means of encrypting data. In addition, the term cipher can refer to the encrypted text itself. Encryption ciphers will use an algorithm, which is the complex mathematical calculation required to “scramble” the text, and a “key”. Knowledge of the key will allow the encrypted message to be de-crypted.
