Which of the following cryptographic algorithm uses public key and private key to encrypt or decrypt data ?
Answer: C Explanation:
Asymmetric algorithm uses two keys, public key andprivate key, to encrypt and decrypt data.
What is asymmetric encryption?
Asymmetric encryption is a type of encryption that uses two keys – a public key and a private key pair for data encryption. The public key is available to everyone, while the privateor secret key is available only to the recipient of the message. For example, when a user sends a message or data to another user, the sender uses a public key to encrypt the data. The receiver uses his private key to decrypt the data.
Answer option B is incorrect. Symmetric algorithm uses a single key to encrypt and decrypt data.
Answer option A is incorrect. Hashing encryption algorithm uses a process of converting a message, or data, into a numeric value to encrypt data. Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA) and Message Digest Algorithm (MDA) are two standards that use the hashing process for encryption.
Answer option D is incorrect. There is no such cryptographic algorithm as Numeric. Reference. TechNet, Contents. quot;Description of Symmetric and Asymmetric Encryptionquot;

An unauthorized person calls a user and pretends to be a system administrator in order to get the user#39;s password.
An unauthorized person modifies packet headers by using someone else#39;s IP address to his identity.
Following are the types of social engineering attacks: 1.An unauthorized person calls a user and pretends to be a system administrator in order to get the user#39;s password.
2.An unauthorized person gainsentrance to the building where the company#39;s database server resides and accesses the server by pretending to be an employee.
A social engineering attack is based on misleading users or administrators at the target site. Social engineering attacks are usually carried out by telephoning users or operators and pretending to be an authorized user in order to gain unauthorized access to systems. Answer option D is incorrect.
Spoofing is a technique that makes a transmission appear to have come from an authenticsource by forging the IP address, email address, caller ID, etc. In IP spoofing, a hacker modifies packet headers by using someone else#39;s IP address to his identity.
However, spoofing cannot be used while surfing the
Internet, chatting on-line, etc. because forging the source IP address causes the responses to be misdirected.
