Compartmentalized cryptography –
A phrase invented by Sophie to explain the process by which multiple cryptographers work to decode only a part of the code. This way, no one cryptographer knows the entire message. Compartmentalized cryptography is used when intelligence agencies intercept codes containing sensitive data from foreign powers. (Brown, 378)
Keyword searches often produce long lists of items that may or may not be what you are looking for. To help alleviate this problem
, you can restrict the number of items retrieved by performing an ‘expert’ keyword search by using a Boolean operator. A Boolean operator is when the conjunctions AND, OR, and NOT are placed in between terms to specify a search.
For example: SEARCH: London AND Knight AND Pope NOT Alexander Pope

Alexander Pope – Born on May 21, 1688 in London, Alexander Pope was an English poet and satirist of the Enlightenment. He was most famous for An Essay on Criticism, The Rape of the Lock, The Dunciad, and An Essay on Man. Pope was a Roman Catholic, and since Catholics were not admitted into universities, he was deprived of a formal education, in which case he was self-educated. Pope died on May 30, 1744 in Twickenham, England. (See Alexander Pope annotation in chapter 95)
