I am new to this and want to ask a basic question.Suppose I used my password (say "ABC123") to generate a key using PBKDF2 algorithm (or any such algorithm).For encrypting a file I'll input my ...
In asymmetric cryptography, is it possible to ensure that public key derived from a given private key is unique, no matter the algorithm?
I have a digital certificate that I use to exchange messages with peers, my certificate expiration date is due next year, suppose I renew this certificate before it expires, will I be able to open the ...
Knowledge of a CA private key would allow MitM attackers to transparently supplant any certificates signed by that private key. It would also allow cyber criminals to start forging their own trusted ...

If the former, then if the private key can be used to digitally sign messages, why doesn't your client offer to encrypt this highly sensitive piece of data? If the latter, then if someone had access ...
