(cryptography)
To encrypt, to perform encryption.

encode

(1) To assign a code to represent data, such as a parts code. Contrast with decode. See encoding system.

(2) To convert from one format or signal to another. See codec and D/A converter.

(3) The term is sometimes erroneously used for "encrypt." However, encoded data are not secretly scrambled and can be decoded easily. See cryptography.
