What is hybrid cryptography?

Lennart Jorelid

Combination of public and private key cryptography, where the exchange of an encrypted session key is done using public key cryptography. The following encrypted session is then pursued with private/symmetric key cryptography. The main reason is that private key cryptography is generally much quicker than public key cryptography.
