Which of the following would be the GREATEST cause for concern when data are sent over the
Internet using HTTPS protocol?
Presence of spyware in one of the ends
The use of a traffic sniffing tool
The implementation of an RSA-compliant solution
A symmetric cryptography is used for transmitting data
Encryption using secure sockets layer/transport layer security (SSL/TLS) tunnels makes it difficult
to intercept data in transit, but when spyware is running on an end user’s computer, data are
collected before encryption takes place. The other choices are related to encrypting the traffic, but
the presence of spyware in one of the ends captures the data before encryption takes place.
