Thanks for the response. How would an eavesdropper act as a man-in-the-middle, could you give an example please in the context of a web application?

Thanks for the response. Assuming I was the user and I could confirm an unsigned certificate would the communication channel be secure?

Firstly, thank you for the thorough and succinct answer, really appreciate it. In response to your question with regard to the 'attack model', I want to be sure the Internet facing server doesn't get attacked. Also when you say that nothing hinders an attacker changing the data to something else because of the use of a public key - I'm sorry I don't understand this, could you elaborate please? Thanks

@PaĆ­loEbermann Yes that's correct, I'm only referring to database encryption.
