Rivest, Shamir, Adleman

Everybody says that the security of RSA lies in the difficulty of factoring large numbers.

Bruce Schneier*) says that’s technically a lie. It is conjectured that the security of RSA depends on the problem of factoring large numbers.

Oh man, this is gonna be fun 😀

 

*) Still don’t know who Bruce Schneier is? He’s the one debugging BSD operating systems. That’s why it’s called BSD; Bruce Schneier Debugged it.

(LOL)
