Definition of cipher-text
The ciphertext is a non-readable transformed form of a plain text. It is the output of an encryption process. This text is only readable by an authorized access.
Breif Explanation of cipher-text
The ciphertext has the main purpose to secure data or information from unauthorized access. Plain text after the process of encryption becomes ciphertext which is specified to an authorized recipient. This text can be readable by an unauthorized only if those parties have a password or secret key. The only authorized recipient has that password or private key for the access to this text.
This text is unreadable for those recipients who do not have a password and until they convert this text into a readable form by a password or private key. This is very helpful in the process of securing information or data to prevent any misuse of confidential data or text of any party.
Before this technological current era, all the process of ciphertext has been done manually instead of machines, in today’s modernized or highly technological world plain text has been converted into ciphertext with the help of machines easily.
