Cyclonis Password Manager
You probably already know that with Cyclonis Password Manager you have your usernames, passwords, payment methods and many other confidential information just a few clicks away. You probably know only you can see it. But how does it all work? Encryption is key Of course, if you store your passwords in Cyclonis Password Manager, they must reside in a computer file.
However, to ensure that no outsider can see them, they should not be saved in a TXT or XLS document. Because of this, Cyclonis Password Manager encrypts them. Some of you may think that cryptography is the domain of spies and secret government agencies. Others might think it’s just witchcraft. In fact, it’s none of that. For passwords, encryption consists of turning the password into an unreadable string of characters that has nothing to do with the original.
It doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact, there are basically only three components required for encryption to work: the input text, the key that encrypts and decrypts the information, and the encrypted output. For example, one of the simplest encryption techniques is the Caesar cipher. Each letter in the plain text is replaced by a letter that is a certain number of letters further down in the alphabet.
Although it has its roots in the Roman Empire, it still retains the three core elements mentioned in the previous paragraph. For example, if we take “password” as input (we sincerely hope it’s not your real password) and use a Caesar cipher to shift each letter down three places in the alphabet (this is the key to Encrypting and decrypting the data) , we get “sdvvzrug”; as an exit. The output is unreadable and, more importantly, it has nothing to do with the input, it is. However, if you know the key, decryption is quite easy.
