Asymmetric encryption by Java Cryptography

1. Overview In cryptography, there are two general categories of key based algorithms: Symmetric encryption algorithms: Symmetric algorithms use the same key for encryption and decryption such as the Data Encryption Standard (DES) and the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) Asymmetric (or public key) encryption algorithms: Asymmetric algorithms use two separate keys for these two operations.… Read More »
