The problems of cryptography and secrecy systems furnish an interesting application of communication theory 1 in this paper a theory of secrecy. This work has broad significance because digital circuits are fundamental to the operation of modern computers and telecommunications systems another example is shannon's 1949 paper entitled communication theory of secrecy systems this work is now generally credited with transforming cryptography from an art to.
Actually, most ciphers used today have a security of this kind after this introduction of attack scenarios and different kinds of security for a primitive, we move to the first study of cryptographic primitives in 1949 claude shannon published his paper on secrecy systems entitled “communication theory of secrecy systems. In the present paper a mathematical theory of cryptography and secrecy systems is developed the entire approach is on a theoretical level and is intended to complement the treatment found in standard works on cryptography∗ there, a detailed study is made of the many standard types of codes and ciphers, and of the.
This changed in 1948, when claude shannon published “a communications theory of secrecy systems” [shannon49] for what had mainly been an art, this work was the first to provide a scientific framework it proved that, in order to achieve perfect secrecy from ad-hoc codes, one needs to hold a secret. His 1949 companion paper on the communication theory of secrecy systems  was, like diffie and hellman's later discovery of public-key cryptography , a key paper in the transition of cryptography from an art to a science there are two types of cryptographic security the security of a crypto- graphic system can rely.
