    Default Hybrid key encryption

    I totally understand symmetric and asymmetric key encryption.

    Struggling to grasp hybrid key encryption. Watched the CBT Nuggets video and reading Mike Meyer's book today.

    Anyone have a good way of simplifying it for me??

    Thanks in advance.

    The great example is that how Wannacry ransomware uses hybrid key encryption.
    Hybrid is basically mixing symmetric and asymmetric cryptosystems.
