Question description


Key Recovery

Key recovery, or key escrow, is a recovery mechanism that stores copies of encrypted keys in separate, often centralized, locations. The term encompasses many different ways of permitting forced access to encrypted data.

The basic purpose of key recovery is to allow authorized third-party users to access encrypted data. However, to ensure that only the intended recipients are allowed access to the keys, the data log must be strictly monitored, and access must be granted only under restricted conditions.

In a 2- to 3-page paper, discuss the purpose of one implementation of key recovery. Address the following questions:

  • What makes this key recovery mechanism useful?
  • How is the mechanism implemented?
  • What are its benefits and risks?
  • What are its theoretical and practical applications?

Remember to properly cite your sources according to APA guidelines.
