Or maybe he's refering to "bit encryption"? If that is the case, there
is a decent tutorial at:

        hmm.. unless that is some acronym I never heard before,
        a bit in encryption is just a bit..  as in "eight bits make a
byte".

        There a probably a million.
        Try this:  go to www.howstuffworks.com and use the search
function
        to search for:    public key cryptography
        
        That will give you quite a lot to start with.
