Cryptosecurity

Definition - What does Cryptosecurity mean?

Cryptosecurity is a component of communications security that deals with the creation and application of measures leading to secure ciphers and codes, which are used to protect encryption systems and methods from enemy discovery, decryption, interception and tampering. This specialty area of communications security is tasked with ensuring that messages and data retain full confidentiality and authenticity.

Techopedia explains Cryptosecurity

In communications security, controlling messages and data is key. This involves ensuring that no unauthorized source has the ability to acquire or even discover the message's existence. But in the event that the message is intercepted by unauthorized sources, it should be in a form that is encrypted so that no information can be derived from it. Cryptosecurity discipline ensures proper maintenance and use of cryptosystems that are in place.
