- cryptography (p.294): Cryptography is a complex phenomenon that shifts in composition and use across history, but is essentially notational symbols that are activated through encryption, to produce ciphertext. Usually (but not always), cryptography refers to a process of establishing and maintaining secrecy (†2382)
- public key cryptography (p.295): two mathematically linked keys can be used for complex multi-pass encryption schemes (such as the Diffie-Hellman key exchange). … [Originally] called “non-secret” encryption... (†2383)
