RSA

Description

RSA (Rivest–Shamir–Adleman) is an asymetric (there are two different keys, one of which being public, the other being private) cryptographic algorithm used to encrypt and decrypt messages.

The algorithm is based on the fact that finding the factors of a large composite number is difficult: when the factors are prime numbers, the problem is called prime factorization. It is also a key pair (public and private key) generator.
