Definition of Private Transmission

A document can be transmitted by one Principal to another in private, so that only the intended recipient can read it, and so that if another Principal intercepts the transmission, the intercepted data will be useless.

Private transmissions are implemented in a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) by encrypting the message with the intended recipient's Public Key.
