Abstract

Securing data during the transmission over a wire is widely popular. It is usually accomplished by encrypting the data during the transmission. However, data on a physical paper is rarely encrypted. This publication talks about the concept of encrypting data on a printed paper. This will provide comparable level of security to the data on a printed paper as it would be during the transmission over the wire.
