How Encryption Works

I love learning new things, and I love when someone can take an incredibly complex concept and break it down using metaphors to make it understandable. This is probably the best explanation I’ve ever seen of how encryption works, and why prime numbers are so important to the process. Not only does it make perfect sense by the end of the video, but it does this using – of all things – paint swirls.
