What is Encryption? Difference between symmetric and asymmetric encryption
Encryption is the act of encoding information to make it unreadable for anyone other than those who are authorized to read it. There are two types of encryption: symmetric and asymmetric. Symmetric encryption uses the same key to encode and decode data, while asymmetric encryption uses different keys - one public key that can be shared with everyone, and one private key only known by the owner.
In this video, we discuss the meaning of encryption and what it is used for. We also go over what asymmetric and symmetric encryption are.
