Objectives:
1) Understand
the 8 RSA Encryption steps.


RSA Cipher in 8
Steps
On
this page, perform the 8 steps involved when encoding using the RSA Cipher. Different from its practical usage, I am using
primes p and q that are less than 30. As a consequence,
the decoding key d could easily be broken and the cipher is far from being
secure. This page serves solely demonstration purposes.
Observe that the first 6 steps are the key generation steps that
are performed quickly by a computer. Steps 7 and 8 display the actual
coding process.


The RSA Cipher was
invented in 1976 by the 3 Mathematicians Rivest, Shamir and
Adleman.
