Question 2 |

Suppose that everyone in a group of N people wants to communicate secretly with the N–1 others using symmetric key cryptographic system. The communication between any two persons should not be decodable by the others in the group. The number of keys required in the system as a whole to satisfy the confidentiality requirement is

2N | |

N(N – 1) | |

N(N – 1)/2 | |

(N – 1) ^{2} |

Question 2 Explanation:

For N people, the number of unique pairs can be calculated using the combination formula (N 2), which is given by:

(N 2) = N(N – 1)/2

The number of keys required in the system as a whole to satisfy the confidentiality requirement is:

N(N – 1)/2

(N 2) = N(N – 1)/2

The number of keys required in the system as a whole to satisfy the confidentiality requirement is:

N(N – 1)/2

Correct Answer: C

Question 2 Explanation:

(N 2) = N(N – 1)/2

The number of keys required in the system as a whole to satisfy the confidentiality requirement is:

N(N – 1)/2
