What Is Cryptology?

Throughout history, world events have changed because of secret messages. Secrets that were kept and secrets that were not. Cryptology is the study of codes, both creating and solving them. Cryptography is the art of creating codes. Cryptanalysis is the art of surreptitiously revealing the contents of coded messages, breaking codes, that were not intended for you as a recipient.
