Looking for the right word! (Confuscate?)

What's the word used to describe the 'confusion, making unclear' of programming code. (Changing variable names to single letters, etc...)


I thought it was confuscation, but I'm spelling it wrong, and the spell checkers change it to 'confiscation'...........Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Please help!

it's obfuscated - code that is incredibly hard to read - but actually works.
