@atoponce Cryptology includes cryptography and cryptanalysis. But I would argue that it includes other cryptography-tangential mechanisms like authentication, signatures, zero-knowledge proofs, randomness generation, etc. Personally, I view cryptology as a more mathematical endeavor as well, and cryptography to be more applicable to application.
True story: A recruiter once asked me what cryptology meant... and wondered if it was the study of hieroglyphics.
