Hi everyone. Just making my first post to say hi.   :)
 
Hi! But why should it be encrypted?

Hi! But why should it be encrypted?

 

If it was encrypted, you'd need a key.   :P  It's encoded as hexadecimal, not encrypted. EDIT: Oh, and the reason was a little bit of fun figuring out what it said.  :)

 

Summary

 
* Encoding is for maintaining data usability and can be reversed by employing the same algorithm that encoded the content, i.e. no key is used.
* Encryption is for maintaining data confidentiality and requires the use of a key (kept secret) in order to return to plaintext.
* Hashing is for validating the integrity of content by detecting all modification thereof via obvious changes to the hash output.
* Obfuscation is used to prevent people from understanding the meaning of something, and is often used with computer code to help prevent successful reverse engineering and/or theft of a product’s functionality.
