Key Management explained
Hackers aren’t looking to break your encryption, they want to find your keys.
When data is encrypted a new key is created. Keys need to be protected to ensure the means to unlocking your data remains secret.
Data encryption is classified in two types; symmetric and asymmetric. Each term refers to the respective number for keys used. Symmetric encryption uses one single key to encrypt and decrypt the data. In Asymmetric encryption, a public key encrypts data and a private key decrypts it. The public key can be freely distributed, however the private key must be kept very secure.
Key Management is the procedure of protecting keys, this involves identifying who holds the keys; how they are generated; how they are distributed, and how they are rotated.
