Asymmetric Cryptography

Asymmetric Cryptography, also known as Public Key Cryptography. It uses public and private keys to encrypt and decrypt data. The keys are large numbers that have been paired together but are not identical (asymmetric). A public key can be shared with everyone. The private key in the pair is kept secret. Protocols such as SSH, S/MIME rely on asymmetric cryptography for encryption and digital signature functions.
