• Do mobile networks use encryption on SMS when used for two-factor authentication?

    I understand that a ton of two-factor authentication mechanisms use SMS to deliver single-use passphrase to a user. But I'm looking to find out how secure it truly is. Would it be hard to intercept the SMS message containing the passphrase? Do any mobile networks use some kind of encryption on SMS?...

  • What is the difference between shared key and pre-shared key authentication?

    I'm sorry for the 'homework-type question' but does shared key and pre-shared key mean the same thing in terms of authentication? Does pre-shared mean that it's already been shared by different parties? Thank you for the help.
