The science of providing information security
by reversibly transforming data. Scrambling an egg is a commonplace analogy.
The action of mixing the molecules of the egg is like encryption: Because the
molecules are mixed up, the egg is in a higher state of entropy or randomness.
Being able to unscramble the egg and put it back in its original form would be decryption.
Algorithm; Decryption or Decipher.
