Caption: Caesar cipher. Diagram illustrating the principles of the Caesar cipher, the most widely known encryption technique. It works by replacing each letter with another letter a fixed number of places down the alphabet, here by a shift of 3. Julius Caesar is thought to be one of the first people to employ this encryption technique for the sake of securing messages to his generals.
