Comparing and contrasting basic concepts of cryptography

The most common asymmetric algorithms include the Diffie Hellman, which creates a secure session so that symmetric data can flow securely. An example of this would be the L2TP/IPsec VPN. RSA is the commonly used asymmetric algorithm that was the very first of its kind, creating public and private key pairs. Elliptic Curve Cryptography is an asymmetric algorithm used for the encryption of small mobile devices.
