Symmetric encryption is faster but difficult to implement. Explain why? What is it also known as ?How does it work ?What is asymmetric encryption? What is its alternate name? What is its disadvantage? Explain the process of asymmetric encryption? What is the use of digital certificates in the process of asymmetric encryption?
How would you would you differentiate between symmetric and asymmetric encryption?
symmetric encryption is called as secret key encryption.
asymmetric encryption is called as public key encryption.
The symmetric encryption is known to be faster with its high rates of data throughput and somewhat difficult to implement because of high security risks existing in sharing the key. Hence, very effective key management is required.
Disadvantages of asymmetric keys,
Magnitude is several orders slower than symmetric keys
Key sizes are relatively much larger
Less secure than symmetric synchronization
