While discussing archive authenticity/integrity for long term and the problem of potentially re-keying in case of compromise, someone came up with the term "trans-cipher" (or "trans-ciphering").
I have tried to search the entire internet for this, but could not come up with a meaning for this. Can someone enlighten me?
Note: in the context of long term archive authenticity, the term came up while talking signature verification and the problem when a private key is compromised or when the algorithm for the public/private key gets obsolete (e.g. due to hardware raw power reaching a point where what was in the past difficult to factor becomes trivial).
PS: it is possible that the exact term is slightly different than "trans-cipher". On this project digital footprint is being used for digital fingerprint (aka crypto-hash function)...
