SonicWALL threat researchers also saw cyber criminals begin to deploy ransomware that leverages asymmetric key encryption to encrypt critical data on infected machines.
A major breakthrough in the 90's saw the rapid expansion of the use of encryption with the arrival of asymmetric key encryption.
There are a number of asymmetric key encryption systems but the best known and most widely used is RSA, named for its three co-inventors Rivest, Shamir and Adleman.
The encryption level is the same 256-bit AES encryption and RSA 2048 asymmetric key encryption used to encrypt sensitive data on Personal.
The dsPIC30F Asymmetric Key Encryption Library supports the Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA) and Rivest-Shamir-Adelman (RSA) algorithms, which each utilize two separate keys to protect data -- enabling design engineers to reduce code-breaking risks by sharing only one of the keys.
In addition to standard encryption, decryption and authentication functions, the dsPIC30F Asymmetric Key Encryption Library has several useful auxiliary functions.
