why I should satisfy these ? $e$ should be small. There's 3 reasons It's in the interest of speed of the public-key operations (encryption and signature verification), which in RSA take time roughly proportional to $\log e$. It ensures compatibility with some implementations, which limit $e$ to 32 (or is it 31) bits. It makes it impossible to use a small $...
