ciphertext - Data that has been encrypted. Ciphertext is the output of the encryption process and can be transformed back into a readable form plaintext with the appropriate decryption key.

The (encrypted) message output from a cryptographic algorithm that is in a format that is unintelligible.

The encrypted text of a message, which may be decrypted only by someone who has the correct key.

The result of encrypting data into an apparently random and meaningless format. Ciphertext must be decrypted to be converted into a readable format.

Encrypted output of a cryptograph algorithm. Input to the decryption process.

The result of applying a cryptographic algorithm to readable data ( plaintext) in order to render the data unreadable by all entities except those in possession of the appropriate key.

The encrypted version of a message.

Data that has been encrypted. Cipher text is unreadable until it has been converted to plain text (decrypted) with a key. See decryption.

The message (or plaintext) after encipherment.

The encrypted text of a message, which requires a Key for the recipient to read the message.

Ciphertext is encryption text. Plaintext is what you have before encryption, and ciphertext is the encrypted result.

Data that has been encrypted with a cipher, as opposed to plaintext.

Form of cryptography in which the plaintext is made unintelligible to anyone, who intercepts it by a transformation of the information itself, based on some key.

Ciphertext refers to text that is encrypted.

Ciphertext is the encrypted form of the message being sent.

Ciphertext is information that has been encrypted into seemingly meaningless code.

A message form that cannot be understood by unauthorised parties. Ciphertext is created from plain text by an encryption algorithm.

The encrypted message. The plaintext is converted to ciphertext during the process of encryption and vice-versa during decryption.

the output generated by encryption.

The resulting encrypted message produced by a cipher algorithm.

Text that has been encrypted using an encryption key. Ciphertext is meaningless to anyone who does not have the decryption key. See also decryption; encryption; encryption key; plaintext.

In Cryptographic Support, data that is unintelligible to all except those who have the key to decode it to plaintext. The output of an encryption function. Encryption transforms plaintext into ciphertext.

Encrypted information that cannot be read by anyone without the proper key to decrypt the information.

An encrypted message

the disguised (or encrypted) file or message. Code - the usage of characters' or words to represent words, sentences, or ideas. Morse code is a common example, where combinations of dots and dashes represent letters and numbers.

A message that has been encrypted.

Information generated by an encryption algorithm to protect the plaintext. The ciphertext is unintelligible to the unauthorized reader.

The result of encrypting a message. See Also: Plaintext

The result of the encryption of ciphertext, using a cipher.

The output following the process the encrypting of a piece of data.

Data produced through the use of Encipherment .The semantic content of the resulting data is not available. Note - Cipher text may itself be input to encipherment,such that super-enciphered output is produced. source: ITU-T X.800 domain: Security usage

Text that has been encrypted with an encryption algorithm and key.

Information disguised by encryption, which only the intended recipient can decrypt.

Message text that has been encrypted.

The result after â†’ Plaintext is passed through a â†’ Cipher. See: SSL/TLS Encryption

Text that has been scrambled through the use of a cipher. Decryption of ciphertext requires an encryption key See also: cipher, decryption, encryption key.

Plaintext converted into a secretive format through the use of an encryption algorithm. An encryption key can unlock the original plaintext from ciphertext.

The result after a Plaintext passed a Cipher.

In cryptography, the unintelligible text that results from encrypting original text. Sometimes called "cipher."

The encrypted form of the plaintext.

Encrypted data.

Ciphertext is the product of encryption. It is text that has been encoded in such a way, that it can only be decoded again by individuals possessing the appropriate key.
