Encryption & Encryption Key- Pronunciation, Meaning, Sentence Examples

Learning The English Vocabulary: encrypt, encryption, and encryption key

In the continuing series of Words to Pronounce More Clearly, I shared information about the words encrypt, encryption, and encryption key. 

I will guess these words are more important than ever with people working from home and wanting to keep their corporate data secure.

Encryption & Encryption Key- Pronunciation, Meaning, Sentence Examples

Let's look at the definitions of some of these words, extracted from Google Search:

Encrypt (verb):
  1. convert (information or data) into a cipher or code, especially to prevent unauthorized access.
  2. conceal data in (something) by converting it into a code. 

Example sentence using the words "encryption" and "encrypted" from the Cabot Solutions blog:
To overcome this, all the areas of vulnerability should be identified and focused. Data encryption makes it secure, so the data has to be encrypted, both when in motion and when at rest. This is usually done through Transport Layer Security (TLS) and this makes it easier to validate.

Encryption Key (from the IBM website):
An encryption key is typically a random string of bits generated specifically to scramble and unscramble data. Encryption keys are created with algorithms designed to ensure that each key is unique and unpredictable.

Example script using the term "encryption key" from the ThinkPalm blog:
Ransomware may be a combination of ransom+software. It refers to any kind of software program that requests any kind of ransom in trade for the encryption key of the user’s seized records. The encryption key is essentially a key to open the bolted records of the client. Bolted records may be mixed media records, office records or framework records that a user’s computer depends on.
