I am asking myself the following question:

Say Alice sets all things up so that she is the reciever in an RSA-system. What do you call this "network" now?

I hope it is clear what I mean. I sincerely do not know the correct word for that. I could think of something like:

  • RSA-channel
  • RSA-network

Could you please tell me. (English is not my mother tongue)

    $\begingroup$ I don't think there is a specific word for this. Maybe "cryptosystem" is broad enough? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ You could say it's an encrypted connection over RSA $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Topologically speaking (Speaking of the shape) this is a star network. All information flow towards Alice, so it's a centralizing star network. $\endgroup$
