I have found a algorithm frame from friends series. I need to fix bugs on this algorithm frame. Will it be ok if I decrypt this algorithm with private key? Advice me on encryption technology in this.
Algorithm frame from friends series ?
In public key cryptography, there are two types of keys, public and private key. One key is used to encrypt data at sender side; the other is used to decrypt the data at receiver side.
If your friend has encrypted the algorithm frame using his public key, you can decrypt it using private key provided your private key and his public key have some mathematical relation.
But, I still don't guarantee you that the data would be accessible. He may have applied some other algorithms for data integrity like the message digest MD5. But that is just to check that whether the received data is the same as the sent data.
I hope this helps you.
