Public Key Crypto System

A set of security standards from RSA Security. PKCS standards define the cryptographic processes needed to carry out encrypted exchanges between entities.

Public Key Cryptosystem. An asymmetric key encryption system which uses a public/private key pair. A message encrypted by one key can only be decrypted by the other key.

Public Key Cryptography Standards. Published by RSA Data Security Inc., these standards describe how to use public key cryptography in a reliable, secure and interoperable way.

Public Key Cryptography Standards. Standards published by RSA Data Security that describe how to use public key crypto in a reliable, secure, and interoperable fashion.

Public Key Certificate Standard. Syntax standards covering a number of security functions, including a standard way of attaching signatures to a block of data, a form for requesting a certificate, and public key encryption algorithms.

RSA Encryption Standard PKCS #3: Diffie-Hellman Key-Agreement Standard PKCS #5: Password-Based Cryptography Standard PKCS #6: Extended-Certificate Syntax Standard PKCS #7: Cryptographic Message Syntax Standard Informal inter-vendor standards developed in 1991 under the impetus of RSA. More information at: http://www.rsasecurity.com/rsalabs/pkcs/ PKCS #8: Private-Key Information Syntax Standard PKCS #9: Selected Attribute Types PKCS #10: Certification Request Syntax Standard PKCS #11: Cryptographic Token Interface Standard PKCS #12: Personal Information Exchange Syntax Standard PKCS #13: Elliptic Curve Cryptography Standard PKCS #15: Cryptographic Token Information Format Standard.

Public Key Cryptography Standards. These standards allow compatibility among different cryptographic products.

Public Key Cryptography Standards (PKCS), a series of documents published by RSA Data Security.

(Public-Key Cryptography Standars) A set of standards developed by RSA laboratories.

Public-Key Cryptography Standard. RSA Data Security, Inc's attempt to provide an industry standard interface for publicv-key cryptography. Provides a format for transferring data based on a public-key cryptography and an infrastructure to support that transfer.

Public-Key Cryptography Standards. Series of specifications published by RSA Laboratories for data structures and algorithm usage for basic applications of asymmetric cryptography.

Public Key Crypto Standards. A set of de facto standards for public key cryptography developed in cooperation with an informal consortium (Apple, DEC, Lotus, Microsoft, MIT, RSA, and Sun) that includes algorithm-specific and algorithm-independent implementation standards. Specifications defining message syntax and other protocols controlled by RSA Data Security Inc.

Public-Key Cryptography Standards. A series of cryptographic standards dealing with public-key issues, published by RSA Laboratories.

Public Key Cryptography Standards. A family of standards for public key cryptography that includes RSA encryption, Diffie-Hellman key agreement, password-based encryption, extended-syntax, cryptographic message syntax, private key information syntax, and certificate request syntax, as well as selected attributes. Developed, owned, and maintained by RSA Data Security, Inc. See also: certificate; public key cryptography
