Obfuscation is a programming technique in which code is intentionally obscured to prevent reverse engineering and deliver unclear code to anyone other than the programmer. Obfuscation is also applied to programs to ensure intellectual property (IP) protection through reverse engineering prevention.
A vector graphic is a type of image. Vector images are graphical representations of mathematical objects such as lines, curves, polygons and its like. These graphics are generated by computer and they follow x and y axis as their reference definition.
One characteristic of vector graphics is a very high resolution. Such images can be altered easily and their resolution per square pixel remains intact at any level. Common image formats like GIFs and JPEGs are the opposite -- these bitmap images are pixel-based and so can't be resized without losing quality. Once a vector image is rasterized to a .gif or .jpeg, they lose their original resolution.
The Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) format is the the W3C standard for vector graphics.
