When can I have this ready?
1. Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you:
a. Explain, in your own words, the purpose of cryptography and take a position on whether or not you believe encryption is sufficiently utilized in organizations today. Provide a rationale with your response.
b. Describe the differences between symmetric and asymmetric encryption.
c. Select the encryption method you believe is typically more reliable of the two and explain why. Determine if there are any situations where the typically less reliable method could be the better option.
d. Select one (1) of the common cryptographic systems and justify why you believe it to be the best encryption technology to date.
e. Describe the common uses of the aforementioned selected cryptographic system and provide a real-world example of how it is used in securing networks, files, and / or communications in the present day.
f. Create a network diagram of a network and / or in a data flow where your real-world example would exist using a diagramming application such as Visio or Dia.
g. Analyze current cryptographic attacks that are used in the present day and determine how they can be a detriment to the security where encryption is implemented.
h. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.
