s of public key exchange implemented within the field of cryptography. The
Diffie–Hellman key exchange method allows two parties that have no prior
knowledge of each other to jointly establish a shared secret key over an i
nsecure channel. This key can then be used to encrypt subsequent communica
tions using a symmetric key cipher.
