Parent topics

Sibling topic

  • Symmetric key cryptography [r]: A cryptographic system in which there is only one key; the same secret key is used for encryption and decryption. [e]

Techniques

  • Diffie-Hellman [r]: A technique that allows two parties to safely establish a shared secret for use as a cryptographic key, even if someone is eavesdropping on their interaction. It requires that the parties have some means of authentication to be sure they are talking to the right person. [e]
  • RSA algorithm [r]: A widely used public key encryption algorithm whose strength depends on the difficulty of integer factorisation. [e]
