Re: Irreversible encryption
I can't imagine a more useless type of encryption.I can't imagine a more useless type of encryption.
Interestingly, it is useful, but not in the context used by the speaker. Irreversible encryption is useful for password hashes, as it makes it easier to do quick hash encryption that can be only verified by encrypting the same hash and checking if the encrypted bytes match the ones you stored earlier.
But yeah, the "irreversible encryption" they're talking about isn't irreversible at all.
