Abstract

Data security and privacy are the most critical parts of any organization. In this digitalization era, we live in a world where data is maintained through various software without human intervention. Social networking sites are a fundamental part of our day-to-day life, where people can not only have conversations. Still, they can share their data without hesitation, but they are unaware that cyber-criminals can continue to focus on these social platforms to steal all sorts of personal data. Not only in social media but bank transactions too, which are taking place online nowadays, an individual must ensure all kinds of security measures to keep hackers away from crucial data. Encryption is a method of transforming all sorts of data into secret code which no one, including eavesdroppers or hackers, can easily scan. In this method, all kinds of messages, data, and information can be turned into cipher text which, with the help of a shared key, is scanned or specified; however, the message has to be encoded for this method to get implemented. With the help of the encryption method, we can use specific hidden secret codes that can only be accessed by the authorized user and will remain out of reach for the hackers. Even if the hacker succeeds in cracking the password still, accessing the target data will be much more difficult as he will be required to crack several codes necessary for accessing different folders before reaching the target folder (misleading the hacker from the target file) and to make the things worse for the hacker/attacker, a time limit is applied on the target folder after which the attacker can be thrown out of the system. The system itself can identify the attacker from the authorized user.
Once the attacker is thrown out of the system, the password gets changed automatically so the hacker can no longer enter the system using the hacked password.
