The key used for encryption is kept public and so as called public key, and the decryption key is kept secret and called private key. The keys are generated in such a way that it is impossible to derive the private key from the public key. The transmitter and the receiver both have two keys in an asymmetric system. However, the private key is kept private and not sent over with the message to the receiver, although the public key is. ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF ASYMMETRIC CRYPTOSYSTEM

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
