🏁 Learning Objective 1 :- I can define what encryption and decryption means


Encryption

Encryption is the process of converting information or data into a code, especially to prevent unauthorized access.

🏁 Learning Objective 2 :- I can describe what a cipher is


What is a Cipher?

A cipher is any method of 'Encrypting' text. It is also sometimes used to refer to the encrypted text message itself, although here the term ciphertext is preferred.

Who would use a Cipher?

Task - Research 3 famous Ciphers from history and find out what they were used for?

Atbash

Task - Find out what a pigpen cipher is, who used it and then see if you can write your name in it?
