Crypto Keys

One of the biggest weaknesses with crypto keys is sharing their use. Don't do it. Even if the key is secure, you have other problems. Cryptanalysis is the art of breaking ciphers. That sounds like cloak and dagger stuff.

They are two varieties of keys: symmetric and asymmetric. The main difference is that the same keys encrypts and decrypts the data in symmetric processing. While asymmetric processing uses a different key for encrypting and decrypting.

I just had a college class exam. One of the choice in a multiple choice questions was S-HTTP. Now I will share what I know with you. S-HTTP stands for Secure HTTP. It allows encryption to be added to web browsing. In my next post I will go into some SSL details.
