Public key encryption algorithms, such as the RSA algorithm, typically use a public key to encipher a message and a private key to decipher the message.
The encipher and decipher keys are related and chosen from a large universe of possible keys.
The first parameter of this field specifies the cryptographic algorithm used to encipher the message key, and the second field contains the enciphered key.(8) In the asymmetric cryptographic context, the recipient uses the private component of his public-key pair to decrypt the second field, yielding the message key.
Thus, it is no longer true that national power and national security are increased when government has the sole right to gather intelligence and to encipher communications.
Third, it uses only the encipher direction of the block cipher, meaning that one could technically fit it into an implementation with a very constrained code size, if that sort of thing is a concern.
