An encrypted message.
An unencrypted message.
The algorithm used to encrypt and/or decrypt.
Encryption that uses a single, shared key.
Encryption that you encrypt with a public key, but decrypt with a private key.
When you're exchanging a key within the network, what is this called?.
Temporary keys that change often are called what?.
Block ciphers: Used in symmetric encryption Used in asymmetric encription.
What kind of encryption is this?
• Encryption is done one bit or byte at a time
• High speed, low hardware complexity
• The starting state should never be the same twice
• Key is often combined with an initialization vector (IV).
Impossible to convert back to the original string of characters. Hashing Encryption.
Security measure where you convert the text back to the original. Hashing Encryption.
Hashes would be used in securing what?.
What is this?
• A trusted third-party holds the keys
• Allows for recovery of encrypted data.
A message that is embedded in something else, often in an image.
Stream cipher. Used with asymmetric encryption Used with symmetric encryption.
What kind of encryption is this?
• It's asymmetric and needs large integers composed of two or more large prime factors
• Smaller storage and transmission requirements
• Compact - uses complex math to make short keys very strong
• Perfect for mobile devices.
Gives assurances your session keys will not be compromised even if the private key of the server is compromised. By generating a unique session key for every session a user initiates, even the compromise of a single session key will not affect any data other than that exchanged in the specific session protected by that particular key. Perfect Forward Secrecy Quantum cryptography Elliptic curve cryptography Steganography.
Matt, a security analyst, needs to implement encryption for company data and also prevent theft of company data. Where and how should Matt meet this requirement? Matt should implement access control lists and turn on EFS. Matt should implement DLP and encrypt the company database. Matt should install Truecrypt and encrypt the company server. Matt should install TPMs and encrypt the company database.
Which of the following assets is MOST likely considered for DLP? Application server content USB mass storage devices Reverse proxy Print server.
