Hybrid Cryptography in SSL/TLS

This lesson focuses on hybrid cryptography in SSL/TLS. In hybrid cryptography, the client initiates a secure connection and the serve responds by sending its public key to the client. The client then generates a symmetric session key and the client encrypts using the server’s public key. The client then sends the session key (encrypted with the server’s public key) to the server which then uses its private key to decrypt the session key. Once the symmetric session key is distributed, both parties have a secure channel across which to communicate. This lesson also discusses how to preserve file data integrity which can be achieved via hashing and through the use of digital signatures.
