    Symmetric encryption vs. asymmetric encryption!

    Hi everyone,my name is Javier,I'm from Spain:

    I think that the following paragraph is a bit confusing:

    "AES symmetric encryption means the data is encrypted with the same key that's used to decrypt it. This means that the Wii has this key stored somewhere as it needs to use it to decrypt data. Since the same key is used to both encrypt and decrypt data all Wiis must know it so it's considered to be a public key. Team Twiizers are the group credited with extracting the public key by bridging areas of the system memory with tweezers thus the name Team Twiizers. This is the same key that's used by programs like Wiiscrubber and Trucha Signer to decrypt and open game partitions."

    You speak about the key of a symmetric algorithm like AES,but you refers to it like the public key using the same terminology that public key algorithms like RSA.
    I think that could be more fortunate speak of the Wii universal key because you are speaking of the key of a symmetric algorithm.
    And could be nice to say : The universal key is this: ...

    Thx

    It has been updated... "Common Key" is the correct name.
