Sometime back, my team was working on encryption; and we were interested to understand how RSA encryption works. I was given the task to come up with a presentation. I did a lot of research, and a lot of time to understand, what is mentioned in layman’s terms in this article. <br /><br />What is interesting for me is, the whole RSA business counts on the fact that factoring large prime numbers takes a huge amount of time. I guess, the fastest computer takes about 7 months to crack a number generated by two 150 digit prime numbers. In future, If we somehow find a solution to factoring these numbers faster, the whole RSA thing falls apart. <br /><br />Anyway, I was searching for top Indian bloggers—looking for creative writing—when I came across this article. It’s a very good article.

A more intuitive example would have helped. Maybe we can ask RSID for his expose on this perhaps using quantum encryption methods. Or failing that, the <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public-key_cryptography" rel="nofollow"> wikipedia entry </a> on this one is quite good.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
