What is the difference in the purpose of DH and RSA? Aren't they both public-key encryption?
I am a beginner in cryptography and I designed a custom handshake between 2 entities $\rm C$ (client) and $\rm S$ (server) which should meet the following requirements: Requirements: The handshake ...
Sometimes the easiest way to describe security of a type of cryptography is to say that "the time it takes to solve for an x-bit key would be y years". How would one go about doing such a calculation ...
Is the Diffie-Hellman key exchange the same as RSA? Diffie Hellman allows key exchange on a observed wire – but so can RSA. Alice and Bob want to exchange a key – Big brother is watching everything. ...
