There are various encryption methods applied in access control, including symmetric key encryption (SKE), asymmetric key encryption (AKE), and attribute-based encryption (ABE) [17].
- Support for ECC, a standard for asymmetric key encryption, preferred by many government and enterprise customers.
Symmetric key encryption and asymmetric key encryption are the two types of encryption methods.

In contrast, asymmetric key encryption uses a pair of mathematically related keys, each of which decrypts the encryption performed using the other.
A major breakthrough in the 90's saw the rapid expansion of the use of encryption with the arrival of asymmetric key encryption. And asymmetric encryption gave birth to two technologies that are now found in every corner of the enterprise: SSH and SSL.
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.
