An organization is using symmetric encryption. Which of the following would be a valid reason for
moving to asymmetric encryption? Symmetric encryption:

provides authenticity.

is faster than asymmetric encryption.

can cause key management to be difficult.

requires a relatively simple algorithm.

In a symmetric algorithm, each pair of users needs a unique pair of keys, so the number of keys
grows and key management can become overwhelming. Symmetric algorithms do not provide
authenticity, and symmetric encryption is faster than asymmetric encryption. Symmetric algorithms
require mathematical calculations, but they are not as complex as asymmetric algorithms.
