comment Are there examples of encryption in nature?
This sounds similar to what @Nick mentioned (in concept not biology). Which deals more with authentication than protecting a "message".

@nico Thank you. I am not looking for encoding but encryption. Which, as you mentioned, does imply secrecy. I'm not well versed in biology and couldn't think of any example, hence the question =)

I see encrypted information as needing to be decrypted before it can make any sense. Whereas given enough resources, complex patterns can be understood without modifying the data itself. For example trying to read an encrypted text vs trying to read Chinese (if you don't know Chinese).
