This question already has an answer here:
I hear it commonly said that the advantages of Symmetric encryption are speed and no limit to the amount of data that can be symmetrically encrypted.
I also hear it commonly said that the advantages of Asymmetric encryption are security.
But theoretically, if I want to symmetrically encrypt a 1TB file, my algorithm is just going to break the 1TB file into smaller chunks, encrypt them, and spit out the cipher text.
Why couldn't I do the same with Asymmetric encryption? AKA, what are the practical limitations of using Asymmetric encryption for bulk encryption?
