Secret Key CryptographyProblems
 Traditional (secret key) cryptographyuses a single key shared by bothsender and receiver. This has somedrawbacks:
If this key is disclosed communications are compromised -anyone who learns the method of encryption and gets the key,or a number or sequence of numbers or the sequences'equivalent of numbers that are used as a random input into theencrypted system, can break the key.
Keys must be exchanged before transmission with any recipientor potential recipient of your message. So, to exchange keysyou need a secure method of transmission, but essentially whatyou've done is create a need for another secure method of transmission. This means that you must either use a securechannel or meet in person in order to share this key. This can be
