  IDEA (International Data Encryption Algorithm)
IDEA, unlike the other block cipher algorithms discussed in this section, is patented by the Swiss firm of Ascom.
In IDEA, for purposes of multiplication, a 16 bit word containing all zeroes is considered to represent the number 65,536; other numbers are represented in conventional unsigned notation, and multiplication is modulo the prime number 65,537.
Those that are multiplied in are replaced by their multiplicative inverse, modulo 65,537, in IDEA notation when used to change blocks directly, but those used to calculate the cross-footed F-functions are not changed.

  data encryption. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
Until 1976 the algorithms were symmetric, that is, the key used to encrypt the plaintext was the same as the key used to decrypt the ciphertext.
This algorithm requires two keys, an unguarded public key used to encrypt the plaintext and a guarded private key used for decryption of the ciphertext; the two keys are mathematically related but cannot be deduced from one another.
Data encryption is regarded by the U.S. government as a national-security issue because it can interfere with intelligence gathering—therefore, it is subject to export controls, which in turn make it difficult for U.S. companies to function competitively in the international marketplace.

 The Industrial Ethernet Book - Articles: Encryption technology for embedded network devices
Each algorithm uses a string of bits known as a 'key' to perform the calculations: the larger the key, the greater the number of potential combinations that can be created, thus making it harder to break the code and unscramble the contents.
To keep data secure, it is important to use data encryption as a means of data translation into another format, or alternate language which provides the highest level of security protection.
Data encryption of networked devices is seen as the best way to cut the risks associated with misplaced, lost or stolen data.

Encryption transforms some input into an output that is impossible to read without the proper key.
While the algorithm always operates the same way, the use of a key ensures that the output will always be different (given the same input).
Because algorithms are usually public and well known, good encryption relies on a solid algorithm and avoiding the use of weak keys.

Cryptography is an algorithmic process of converting a plain text (or clear text) message to a cipher text (or cipher) message based on an algorithm that both the sender and receiver know, so that the cipher text message can be returned to its original, plain text form.
The International Data Encryption Algorithm (IDEA) was invented by James Massey and Xuejia Lai of ETH Zurich, Switzerland in 1991 and is patented and registered by the Swiss Ascom Tech AG, Solothurn [Lai 92].
Therefore, the encryption key can be made public, provided the decryption key is held only by the party wishing to receive encrypted messages (hence the name public/private key cryptography).
