Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
A symmetric cipher that was designed to replace DES.
Triple Data Encryption Standard (3DES)
Encryption that uses a single key to encrypt and decrypt a message.

Hiding the existence of data within another type of file
A cryptographic function that applies a process on the input that has
been padded with additional characters until all characters are used.

decrypt a message.

different for each session.
perfect forward secrecy
Exchanging secure information outside the normal communication channels.
