    Encryption is used for data security, when you want to secure your data or any string like a password then that content needs to be replaced by some fuzzy characters and we will get some text, that is called as encrypted text. And when we get original text that pattern is known as decryption. There are various encryption algorithm exist. To read an encrypted file, you must have access to a secret key or password that enables you to decrypt it. Unencrypted data is called plain text ; encrypted data is referred to as cipher text.
    With the help of .NET you can do encryption using various algorithm

    Hi,

    If you Google the same, you may get best links for the same, Encryption is the mechanism to protect your secured information by converting the object into other format, where as Decryption is working as vice versa.

    Encryption is used to encrypt sensitive or critical data so that it is hidden from the users. There are various algorithms to encrypt data such as SHA1. The data such as user password or the connection string in the web.config file is encrypted. Similarly decryption is used to decrypt the encrypted data and used in the application. Hackers can use the unencrypted data to destroy your application or tamper the data in the database.
