- Definition of textbook RSA 3 answers
Let's say I use RSA encryption, it's 2048 bits and I use a simple character padding scheme, every character is turned into a 3 digit number and strung together, then encrypted. Saying that no message will be below 40 characters, ending up in a 120 digit number, how insecure is this?
Edit: The public exponent is as small as it could be, let's say 7 in this case
