Math algorithms are complex and can easily be broken

### What is a disadvantage of symmetric cryptoghrapy?

Symmetric cryptography only requires one key for both encryption and decryption and therefore in some cases are a issue.

### What is a disadvantage of symmetric cryptography?

In symmetric key encryption there is one key that is shared with the person you want to share with your data. The largest disadvantage is that you have to make sure that the key remain secret.

Symmetric

AES

### What the the different types of cryptography?

### What is symmetric cryptography?

There are two general types of modern cryptography; symmetric cryptography and asymetric (also known as public key) cryptography. Symetric crypto is where both sides have the same shared encryption key, and that key is used to both encrypt and also decrypt any encrypted information. Symmetric crypto is more efficient (faster) than asymmetric crypto, but asymetric crypto works without having to share a key.

Yes

### How asymmetric cryptography both requires and support the use of symmetric cryptography?

Lmfao - do Richard kays coursework by yourself instead of asking others to answer it for you.

### What are the steps involved in symmetric cryptography Also explain key management in conventional cryptography using some example?

following steps are involved in symmetric cryptography 1- sender creates a ciphertext message by encrypting the plain text message with a symmetric encryption algorithm and a shared key. 2- the sender sends the ciphertext message to the recipient. 3- the recipient decrypts the ciphertext message into plain text with a shared key.

### What statement relating to access control is accurate?

Symmetric cryptography is impractival when a large group is involved.
