Why is cryptography suddenly becoming such a big topic? Let’s face it. Cryptography has been at the core of every secure transaction since the dawn of the Internet — unassuming and low profile, it has been working its security magic all the way from hardware to apps. Public key cryptography, to be more exact, ensures the authentication and identity of all transactions and participants in the digital world.
