- perfect forward secrecy
A key-establishment protocol, used to secure VPN communications. If one encryption key is compromised only data encrypted by that specific key is compromised. For perfect forward secrecy (PFS) to exist the key used to protect transmission of data must not be used to derive any additional keys.

When a satellite is at its closest point to the earth, it is at the perigee of the orbit. When a satellite is at its furthest point from the earth, it is […]
