Decryption

Published on August 30th, 2021

Decryption is the process of transforming data that has been rendered unreadable through encryption back to its unencrypted form. In decryption, the system extracts and converts the garbled data and transforms it into texts and images that are easily understandable not only by the reader but also by the system.

Decryption may be accomplished manually or automatically. It may also be performed with a set of keys or passwords.
