We sometimes need to hide our confidential data from other users. For that purpose we use encryption algorithms to encrypt our data. There are very many encryption algorithms but I am describing the Rivest, Shamir, Adleman (RSA) Algorithm.
- RSA is an encryption algorithm.
- Developed in: 1977.
- Developed by: Ron Rivest, Adi Shamir, and Leonard Adleman.
The RSA algorithm is the most commonly used public key encryption algorithm.
Public Key Encryption
It is also known as asymmetric cryptography. Two keys are used: Public Key and Private Key. Public Key: For encryption. Private Key: For decryption, also known as a secret key.
