Public Key Cryptography

Public key cryptography (PKC) is an encryption technique that uses a paired public and private key (or asymmetric key) algorithm for secure data communication. A message sender uses a recipient’s public key to encrypt a message. To decrypt the sender’s message, only the recipient’s private key may be used.

Asymmetrical means having parts or aspects that are not equal or equivalent; unequal in some respect.
