Key Pair

Key Pair

A Key Pair is a set of mathematically related keys, generally one public key and one private key. The public key is freely distributed and used to encrypt data; however, it is only possible to retrieve the original information with knowledge of the private key. The keys are generated in a way that makes it very difficult to derive the private key from knowledge of the public key.
