The RSA Cryptosystem
After Whitfield Diffie and Martin Hellman introduced public-key cryptography in their landmark 1976 paper , a new branch of cryptography suddenly opened up. As a consequence, cryptologists started looking for methods with which public-key encryption could be realized. In 1977, Ronald Rivest, Adi Shamir and Leonard Adleman (cf. Fig. 1) proposed a scheme which became the most widely used asymmetric cryptographic scheme, RSA.
