The act of decoding encrypted data so that it can be understood.

The act of restoring an encrypted file to its original, plain text state.

The reverse process of encryption where the encrypted message is deciphered using an assigned key and converted to the original form. Contrast with encryption.

The process of decoding data that has been encrypted into a secret format. Decryption requires a secret key or password.

The encoding of data for security purposes. Encoded data must be decoded or deciphered to be used.

A process that applies a key to restore encrypted data to its original usable state.

The process of transforming cipher text into readable text.

A process of transforming ciphertext into clear text for security or privacy reasons.

The process of changing data (usually the PIN block) from cipher text to clear text.

The act of unscrambling a message to read the contents. See encryption.

The process of converting ciphertext to plaintext by applying a cipher.

n. In computer security, the process of transforming encoded text or ciphertext into plaintext.

Converting encrypted information back into clear text.

The process of turning ciphertext back into plaintext.

The reverse process of encryption in which encoded messages or ciphertext is decoded from its protected, scrambled form into original plaintext so that they can be easily readable.

The process of unscrambling a file that has been previously encrypted. May make use of a single key or a public/private key mechanism.

The process of transforming encrypted data into plaintext.

Decryption is the process of descrambling a scrambled or 'encrypted' message. Web transactions and e-mail messages are sometimes encrypted for security reasons.

A process that converts data from a ciphered format to its original format andt allows only the authorized user to access it. See also encryption.

Encryption is the process of electronically altering a video and/or audio from its original condition. Decryption is the process of returning the video and/or audio to its original condition.

decoding encrypted data to it's original form

the activity of making clear or converting from code into plain text; "a secret key or password is required for decryption"

The process of unscrambling data that has been encrypted. See also encryption.

The conversion of encrypted information ( ciphertext) to its original, readable form ( plaintext).

The process of transforming data from an encoded form back to its original form.

Decryption is the process of converting to plain text data that has been encrypted.

The conversion of a coded (encrypted) signal to its original form, by means of an algorithm.

The processing of received data by the possessor of a secret key in such a way that the intended contents of the data are restored.

converting encrypted data back to its original form, e.g. translating ciphertext to plaintext.

The reserve process of encryption to turn scrambled data back into original form.

Changing a gobbledygook message back into original text making use of suitable algorithms and a key.

Unscrambling encrypted data. Requires a "key" or "code" to unlock the data and present it in a readable form.

Extracting information hidden by the process of encryption.

The process that converts ciphertext to plaintext.

The process of making a encrypted message recognizable with a cipher algorithm.

The process of making encrypted data readable again by converting ciphertext to plaintext. See also ciphertext; encryption; plaintext.

retrieving encrypted information by some defined method

Processes which alter data signals so they can only be interpreted by devices with the proper (corresponding) technology.

Conversion of encrypted coded to unsecure, readable text or code.

Converting decoded - encrypted - data to its original form.

To convert indecipherable gibberish into plain English that everyone can understand. SEE ALSO: encryption.

The process of turning an encrypted message back into its readable form

The process of converting ciphertext to plaintext. Decryption is the opposite of encryption.

any process to convert ciphertext back into plaintext. DES - Data Encryption Standard. A cipher developed by the United States government in the 1970s to be the official encryption algorithm of the U.S.

The process of transforming cypher text back to its original plain text format.

A technique used to recover the original plaintext from the ciphertext such that it is intelligible to the reader. The decryption is a reverse process of the encryption.

This is the reversing of encryption, where a piece of information that has been encrypted (ciphertext) is converted back into plaintext. See also encryption, cryptography.

The transformation of unintelligible data ("ciphertext") into original data ("clear text").

Transformation of encrypted text into a readable format.

The process by which a satellite signal is unscrambled (decoded) to enable viewing.

Decoding a message to its original meaningful form by means of an algorithm, key, or other standard. Any procedure used in cryptography to convert ciphertext (encrypted data) into plaintext. Return to the top

The transformation of encrypted data back into the original, intelligible form. Opposite to Encryption.

Decryption is the process of transforming ciphertext back into plaintext. It is the reverse of encryption.

Decryption is the process of converting encrypted data, or Cipertext, back into its original form

The science of turning enciphered text into plain text without prior knowledge of the algorithms or keys involved. This is what the interceptor or 'cracker' does.

The process of transforming cipher text into plain.

Encryption is the process of making information unintelligible to anyone not possessing the decryption key and algorithm.

Process of converting contents of a message that has gone through encryption (ciphertext) back into its original readable format (plaintext).

The unscrambling of data that has been encrypted. See encryption.

The process of decoding encrypted data to its legible format. Decryption requires a special key or password to restore the data to its original format.

Decryption is the decoding and unscrambling of received encrypted data. The same device, host computer or front-end processor, usually performs both encryption and decryption.

Decryption is the process of using a cryptographic algorithm to transform ciphertext into plain text.

The process of decoding (unscambling) a message that has been encrypted using defined mathematical rules.

the process of converting encrypted data back into its original form, so it can be understood

The process of unscrambling a message to make it readable. See also encryption.

The process of converting the contents of an encrypted message (ciphertext) back into its original readable format (plaintext).

the inverse function of encryption; to change ciphertext into plaintext.

The process of unscrambling encrypted information so that it becomes legible again. The recipient"s private key is used for decryption.

The recovery of the original data from an encrypted file or signal.

The transformation of encrypted text (called ciphertext) into original text (called plaintext). Sometimes called "deciphering."

The method of unscrambling encrypted information. See "encryption".

see decode.

The decoding process of an encrypted file into its original form.

The translation of encrypted text or data (called ciphertext) into original text or data (called plaintext). See also: Deciphering.

The hardware and/or software that enables the interpretation of an encrypted/scrambled message. See confidentiality, decryption.
