Historically, cryptography has been used to send secret messages. The sender converts the message into something incomprehensible that only the intended recipient can convert back into its original text. Today, cryptography is not only used to send private information, but it also used to digitally sign documents. A digital signature is used as verification when someone sends a message; it ensures that the message actually came from the sender and not an impersonator.
