Since the size of the auxiliary data is usually less than that of the compressed image, the time complexity for enciphering auxiliary data is less than that of the above two issues.
Although the enciphering scheme being a straightforward procedure, the inverse problem constitutes a very expensive task.
The difference between commercial scrambling and enciphering is illustrated by applying each process to the word SENSITIVE, for example.
Enciphering is usually done at the level of individual characters or electrical (binary) bits of information where substitution completely alters the information.

Luna SP also includes an integrated FIPS 140-2 level 3 validated HSM capable of performing over 1200 transactions per second (1024-bit RSA operations) to provide high-performance cryptographic processing for applications requiring key generation, enciphering, deciphering, or digital signatures.
The advocates of jamming, on the other hand, point out that today's sophisticated enciphering techniques, low probabilities of intercept and other forms of electronic counter-countermeasures, make the question moot.
We will illustrate the idea of using such functions by enciphering blocks of 64 bits.
In addition, SIPPS is one of the only voice-over IP software client that protects the caller's privacy by enciphering the transmitted data with a 64-bit encryption during conversations between SIPPS clients.
On the other hand, the advocates of jamming point out that today's sophisticated enciphering techniques and low probability of intercept (LPI) transmission make the question moot.
