I've already stated I was wrong about that. If someone is sorting a list, they'll know they're sorting a list, they just don't know what's in the list. If they add two values they know they're adding two values, they just won't know what values they're adding, and possibly not the sum, depending on implementation.
For example, you could bank with an encrypted account, and even though the bank has no idea how you're spending your money, they can still perform necessary calculations on it. Its protecting your actions, while still allowing you to bank.
>Transmitting information solely for the purposes of preventing transmitting information.
Yeah, there's a word for that. Its "cryptography."
