A General Overview of Public Key Encryption

In this Tech Talk, I go over some basics in cryptography including symmetric key encryption, asymmetric key encryption, and digital signatures. I talk about some problems that symmetric key encryption suffers from (even though it is the most common form!) and how public key encryption solves some commonly encountered. Then I talk about how digital signatures also came about as a result of public key encryption.
