(also nonlinear function or nonlinear system)
Nonlinearity is a property of a system or function where the output is not directly proportional to the input. In the context of cybersecurity, nonlinearity often refers to cryptographic algorithms or encryption techniques that utilize nonlinear mathematical operations to increase the complexity of the encryption process and make it more resistant to attacks.
Linearity is the opposite of nonlinearity, where the output is directly proportional to the input. Linear systems are typically easier to analyze and understand but can be less secure in the context of encryption, as they may be more susceptible to cryptanalysis.
