Techopedia explains End-to-End Encryption (E2EE)
The advantages of end-to-end encryption are as follows:
- A separate key is not required for the decryption of the packet data in the hop computer on the network.
- Greater flexibility to the user in deciding which data to encrypt. Selective encryption provides great help in the case of sensitive data.
- Availability of choosing specific configurations helps in higher modularization of the functionality.
- The file size involved is smaller, and the processing uses only a minimal yet sufficient set of resources and encryption time.
