"In symmetric cryptography, the same key is used to both encrypt and decrypt a message. This seems simple and straightforward; however, the complexity lies in how to transfer a key securely to your recipient. How do you know that someone won't intercept the key while it is being transferred? Common algorithms used for symmetric cryptography include DES, Triple-DES, and the RC2 algorithms."
