I'm planning to encrypt some individual files for storage, using the GnuPG implementation of RSA. If I happened to encrypt the private key corresponding to the public key used for encrypting -- either ...
Is there anything like the famous "sorting out sorting" video in cryptography/security. I am looking for some nice videos that explaines SSL, SET, IPSec, PGP, S/MIME ....
How does GPG (or other programs using the OpenPGP file format) verify that it has succeeded with decryption (for symmetrically encrypted data)? Is something appended to the clear text so there exist ...
I know it uses RSA/DSA to create keys, but does it use that same algorithm for the actual cipher?
Lets say for a PGP/GPG pair with a passphrase.
So Bob grabs Alice's secret key when she isn't looking and her encrypted files, doesn't he need to know her passphrase to read her files? What I am reading is that no he does not need it but as far ...
