What is one of the advantages of using both symmetric and asymmetric cryptography in SSL/TLS?
- Supporting both types of algorithms allows less-powerful devices such as mobile phones to use symmetric encryption instead.
- Symmetric algorithms such as AES provide a failsafe when asymmetric methods fail.
- Symmetric encryption allows the server to security transmit the session keys out-of-band.
- Asymmetric cryptography is computationally expensive in comparison. However, it is well-suited to securely negotiate keys for use with symmetric cryptography.
