Right, on the money.  But as some people stated cryptology is a part of
security.  How big a part differs in opinion.  

If you want to go into cryptography, breaking codes and creating new
algorithms, study math.  Remember the monoalphabetic or the polyalphabetic
substitution ciphers that went unbroken for centuries?  Just to be broken by
the likes of Charle Babbage?

Hi all,
I'm studying MITS (Master of Information Technology Security). I think
Classical Cryptography doesn't guarantee any security for ever. The
complexities of Mathematic just hide Information from public and fool
hackers, but the talent hackers (notorious hacker) can get the Information by
decrypting the code. The size of public key may delay the cryptanalysis only.
Today's 2048 bit RSA key will be easily broken in near future with quantum
computers.
