How can a certificate be verified?What is needed?

What is a self-signed certificate?Why is it needed?

Which modes of operation can be used with asymmetric encryption?

Lecture 5

What is the generic authentication protocol?What does it require?

How many messages could be created (ignoring practical length restrictions)?

How many fixed-length MACs (or hashes) could be generated by a MAC (or hash) function?
