Cryptography and Internet security are a major concern for anyone planning on or currently using the Internet, for various viral reasons. As the technology used to connect people via the Internet advances, so do the viruses and security threats that coincide with them. In order to protect themselves, end users need to implement cryptography which offers a myriad of options and implementation processes. Information for the acquisition of encryption technologies and protocols are located throughout the Internet, and many are able to be downloaded and used freely. Not only does cryptography apply to Internet security but to devices, like a credit card reader or bar code scanner.
