To-day periodical evaluation of scientific outputs of research has been given high priority specifically on subject domain. Bibliographic method has been adopted to analyse the research output. In this paper Cryptography research output has been taken up for the study. Cryptography is the science of writing in secret code and is an ancient art. To analyse the growth of cryptography research output 40 years publications data from 1976 to 2015 collected from scopus database has been taken up for the study. A total of 1,21,697 records were identified in the field of “Cryptography”, of which 1,18,873 research literatures (97.68%) are directly related to Cryptography. The Bibliometric tools such as Relative Growth Rate, doubling time were used beside percentile composition. The study identifies the core journals on cryptography. Further frequently used keywords for cryptographic research output has also been identified. China contributes more on cryptographic research output.
