What is data encryption? What are private and public keys?

Data encryption is a process of encoding data in a secure form to protect it from unauthorized access.

Private keys are the codes used to encrypt and decrypt data. They are mathematically related and can be used to validate the identity of users.

Public keys are codes that are publicly available and used to encrypt data.

A key pair is a combination of both public and private keys.

Data encryption is an important security measure used to protect sensitive information.

Encryption algorithms are used to create an encrypted version of the data.

The encrypted data is then decrypted using the key pair.
