Publications that discuss the generation, establishment, storage, use and destruction of the keys used NIST’s cryptographic algorithms
Generally-speaking, there are two types of key establishment techniques: 1) techniques based on asymmetric (public key) algorithms, and 2) techniques based on symmetric (secret key) algorithms. However, hybrid techniques are also commonly used, whereby public key techniques are used to establish symmetric (secret) key encryption keys, which are then used to establish other symmetric (secret) keys.
