Pros and Cons of Symmetric Cryptography

As we wrap up our lesson on Symmetric Cryptography, we must address the pros and cons of this encryption method.

You’ll discuss its greatest pro—speed. But as we know, sometimes being too fast occurs at a cost. Those costs will be discussed when we cover the cons of Symmetric Cryptography, such as Out of Band Key Distribution, lack of authenticity, issues with integrity, and non-repudiation.

Knowing what the boundaries are with your encryption resources will enable you to make accurate decisions and advise decision-makers with specific points of fact.
