Cryptography, the art of writing secret messages, has been practiced for almost 3000 years. Two people have a message to communicate to each other , with a chance of an outside person intercepting the message before it reaches the receiver . Therefore, the message must be put through an encryption scheme to keep the intervening person from finding the true nature of the message . An encryption scheme is coding a message using an enciphering key and then decoding the coded message with a deciphering key .
