Question and answer
What is a key? What are the differences between private key and public key encryption? Provide examples of each.
In cryptography, a key is a piece of information (a parameter) that determines the functional output of a cryptographic algorithm or cipher. Without a key, the algorithm would produce no useful result. [ In encryption, a key specifies the particular transformation of plaintext into ciphertext, or vice versa during decryption. Keys are also used in other cryptographic algorithms, such as digital
signature schemes and message authentication codes.Public key encryption refers to a type of cypher or code architecture known as public key cryptography that utilizes two keys, or a key pair), to encrypt and decrypt data. One of the two keys is a public key, which anyone can use to encrypt a message for the owner of that key. The encrypted message is sent and the recipient uses his or her private key to decrypt it. This is the basis of public and private key encryption. Read more: ]

Between static and dynamic routing, which one would be the best choice and why
Weegy: With static routes, there will be two "equal cost" paths and your router will load balance between them. You can engineer your "preferred" choices by setting a different administrative distance on separate routes. [ For example: Ip route 10.1.0.0 255.255.0.0 10.0.1.1 Ip route 10.1.0.0 255.255.0.0 10.0.1.2 This will cause you to have two directions to go in order to reach the 10.1.0.0 network and will load balance between them. Ip ... (More)
