Cryptography Simplified

Encryptions are divided into two types:

  1. Symmetric encryption : uses one password to encrypt/decrypt the message.
  2. Asymmetric encryption : uses public/private keys to encrypt/decrypt messages.
  • public key: not necessarily secure, encrypts, confirm signature.
  • private key: should be secured, decrypts, signs.
