Protected - definition(s)

Protected - Throughout ArticSoft products, the term protected is used to mean that information cannot be accessed (used) if it has been protected, unless the user has the necessary authority.   Protection is applied using cryptography.   When information is protected it is encrypted.   The cryptographic key needed to remove that protection is made available to authorized users.   Once it is in their keystore, they will be able to access (view) that protected information.   See also cryptography.
