Summary 0001355: Better wording to replace "decoding algorithm"
Description In the Encryption Option Group, there's the text:

> Due to export restrictions on the decoding algorithm in some countries

The word "decoding" is inappropriate in that:

1. decoding is (strictly speaking) an unkeyed process (e.g. base64)

2. even if there's a key, encryption isn't necessarily the only functionality that may be restricted by the customs.

Some wording that I believe may be better include: "cipher algorithm" which specifically refers to encryption functionalities, or "cryptographic algorithm" which is completely generic.
Desired Action Change "decoding" to "cipher" or "cryptographic".
