Public Key Encryption

  • David Coffin

Abstract

I’m sure you’ve heard of public key encryption (PKE). You probably use it every day—if not in your code or on your servers, then on the Internet. When you use secure socket layers (SSL) in your browser or when you see the lock or key symbol and see https:(with the s) as the protocol in the address bar, you are using PKE and other encryption. SSL is used to send private data such as your credit card number in encrypted form to online merchants.
