The science of cryptology has been the center of research projects for decades. As we know, the explosion of sophisticated mobile devices is a much more recent event. Now, we are facing the task of fusing these two technologies to implement secure mobile communications. As we will see, there are many constraints to implementing secure encryption for wireless devices. While many of these issues lie in the area of hardware capabilities, we must consider the public transmission medium used in these networks. Despite these obstacles, I do believe that we can have working, secure encryption for mobile devices in the near future. I think that this task can be solved via communal development and testing, new calculation methods, processing/storage efficiency, and forethought.
