The technical white paper by BOSaNOVA describes about encryption, the process of scrambling information to make it unreadable to the average human dates back to the Romans. Formerly reserved for high level government agencies, the 1970s saw a shift in encryption practices, making encryption more readily available for new applications in e-commerce, telecommunications and finance. Now, with security breaches commonplace in the daily news, the need for encryption has become so necessary that various agencies have seen a need to step in and impose regulations.
