It is said that the RSA algorithm uses number theory. What parts of number theory does it use? I know it uses modular arithmetic and Euler's totient theorem and function. Is that all?
I am a first year math PhD student with work experience and an MS in math. Do you have any advice regarding internships involved with cryptography and other mathematics other than the NSA? Thanks.
Our assignment asks us to convert an RSA speed in bytes per second to a DES speed in bytes per second. Our professor's treatment of this ("RSA is 100 times slower than DES") seems insufficient. Could ...
Are there any papers, books, or link where it explains how the plain vanilla "textbook RSA" is actually implemented in practice with all the padding and stuff? Basically, I would like to know the ...
What's the difference between the "Signature Algorithm" and the "Signature Hash Algorithm" found in an X.509 certificate? Why does it need a "Signature Hash Algorithm"? Edit: I'm creating the ...
