A Symmetric Key Encryption Using Digital
Envelopes
Digital envelopes created to transmit the symmetric key

Digital envelope:

Problem:
a technique that uses symmetric encryption for large documents, but
public key encryption to encrypt and send the symmetric key.

Public key encryption


Computationally slow, decreased transmission speed, increased processing time
Symmetric key encryption

Insecure transmission lines
Solution:

Uses symmetric key encryption to encrypt document

Uses public key encryption to encrypt and send symmetric
key

Creating a Digital Envelope
(key with in key )
•Diplomatic document (message) is Encrypted using a symmetric
Key (which is required by the Receiver to decrypt the document.)
.
•Now symmetric key is encrypted with receiver public key
•The encrypted report and the digital envelope are
sent across the web (internet).
• The receiver first uses his/ her private key to
decrypt the symmetric key , then receiver uses the
Symmetric key to decrypt the report.
