  • All forms of symmetric encryption take a key shared between a small group of people and encode data using this key so that only those with the key are able to decrypt it. Encryption algorithms tend to rely on problems that are computationally intractable for security, but even more generally these algorithms rely on a fundamental assumption: that the number of potential keys is so large that it cannot be searched via brute force for the correct key in a reasonable amount of time.
