Types
Symmetric key / Private key
In symmetrickey schemes,^{[1]} the encryption and decryption keys are the same. Communicating parties must have the same key before they can achieve secure communication.
Public key
In publickey encryption schemes, the encryption key is published for anyone to use and encrypt messages. However, only the receiving party has access to the decryption key that enables messages to be read.^{[2]} Publickey encryption was first described in a secret document in 1973;^{[3]} before then all encryption schemes were symmetrickey (also called privatekey).^{[4]}Template:Rp
A publicly available public key encryption application called Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) was written in 1991 by Phil Zimmermann, and distributed free of charge with source code; it was purchased by Symantec in 2010 and is regularly updated.^{[5]}
