Why don't we all use the most secure one? Or is there different purposes and bounderies that each one has?
I've been looking in too this in regards to my self education on TOR.
To my knowledge as I understand it you have this art of Cryptography as thats what were talking about hear in regards to encryption and decryption.
Asymmetric and Symmetric and also Hash I think the likes of AES and 3DES and Two fish all fall in too these category. Cryptography goes back and I mean way back to the second world war when the emerging technologies were coming out and todays standards on a digital platform way supersede anything as of even 20 years ago.
I'm not 100 % but I thing the three main category are Asymmetric and Symmetric, and Hash. Everything falls in too these three category.
