Every cryptosystem is based on some kind of secret, such as a key. Regardless of the cipher, the security of a cryptosystem is only as strong as the secrecy of the key. Thus, some of the most startlingly effective attacks on a cryptosystem involve no ciphertext analysis, but instead find flaws in the protocols that manage the keys. Cryptosystems based on symmetric ciphers are particularly vulnerable to protocol attacks, since both the sender and the receiver must be trusted to have a copy of the same secret key. Despite the difficulty of key management in symmetric ciphers, they remain attractive because of their algorithmic simplicity and high throughput when compared to public key ciphers.

Functionalist logic from neoclassical economics is both the strength and the weakness of the first, institution-centered approach. This logic provides a coherent framework with which to analyze the development of financial arrangements but one based narrowly in information economics and agency theory.

Since the 1990s alleviating poverty has been the top priority in international development. Within this framework various initiatives have already been taken. One particular strategy in tackling poverty has generated tremendous enthusiasm among aid donors and NGO’s: the provision of small loans through micro-credit programmes.
