Remember that hash functions are one-way — we cannot reverse them algorithmically. We talked about why this is useful, however let’s get to something that we can encrypt AND decrypt. In cryptography, we call these ciphers. Just like in the last section, and in true “Explain Like I’m Five” fashion, let’s break this down. What is a cipher? What are symmetric ciphers? How are they useful? Are there any weaknesses?
