Established Ways To Attack Even The Best Encryption Algorithm
Which solution is the best – public key or private key encryption? This question cannot have a very rigorous, logical and definitive answer, so that the matter be forever settled :). The question supposes that the two methods could be compared on completely the same indicators – well, from my point of view, the comparison is not very relevant. Encryption specialists have demonstrated that the sizes of public key encrypted messages are much bigger than the encrypted message using private key algorithms. From this point of view, we can say that private key algorithms are more efficient than their newer counterparts. Looking at the issue through the eyeglass of the security level, the public key encryption have a great advantage of the private key variants, their level of protection, in the most pessimistic scenarios, being at least 35 time higher. As a general rule, each type of algorithm has managed to find its own market niche where could be applicable as a best solution and be more efficient than the other encryption model.
