  RSA - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
RSA is still widely used in electronic commerce protocols, and is believed to be secure given sufficiently long keys.
RSA involves two keys: public key and private key (a key is a constant number later used in the encryption formula.) The public key is known to everyone and is used to encrypt messages.
Because RSA encryption is a deterministic encryption algorithm-- i.e., has no random component-- an attacker can successfully launch a chosen plaintext attack against the cryptosystem, building a dictionary by encrypting likely plaintexts under the public key, and storing the resulting ciphertexts.

The owner of the RSA Patent would have difficulty arguing successfully that the encryption operation itself is covered by the patent, separate from the generation of the keys.
The file wrapper of the RSA Patent reveals that the inventors of the RSA Patent did not disclose the Pohlig-Hellman paper to the Patent Office and that the examiner did not consider whether the use of a non-prime number in lieu of a prime number (the only difference between Pohlig-Hellman and RSA) was obvious.

 Define RSA - a definition from Whatis.com - see also: Rivest-Shamir-Adleman
RSA is an Internet encryption and authentication system that uses an algorithm developed in 1977 by Ron Rivest, Adi Shamir, and Leonard Adleman.
The RSA algorithm is the most commonly used encryption and authentication algorithm and is included as part of the Web browsers from Microsoft and Netscape.
Briefly, the algorithm involves multiplying two large prime numbers (a prime number is a number divisible only by that number and 1) and through additional operations deriving a set of two numbers that constitutes the public key and another set that is the private key.

The Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce - commonly known as the RSA - was founded in 1754 by William Shipley, a painter and social activist, on a manifesto "to embolden enterprise, enlarge science, refine arts, improve our manufactures and extend our commerce".
Today the RSA's work is framed by five manifesto challenges that reflect the original mission in 21st-century terms.

 Cryptography FAQ (06/10: Public Key Cryptography)
RSA is a public-key cryptosystem defined by Rivest, Shamir, and Adleman.
The RSA system reduces communications overhead with the ability to have static, unchanging keys for each receiver that are `advertised' by a formal `trusted authority' (the hierarchical model) or distributed in an informal `web of trust'.
Under RSA, if a person wishes to send evidence of their identity in addition to an encrypted message, they simply encrypt some information with their private key called the `signature', additionally included in the message sent under the public-key encryption to the receiver.

RSA still recommend 768-bit as a minimum but it is expected that keys of this size will be vulnerable within the next couple of years [Sch99c] - it would appear that RSA's recommendations are far too optimistic.

 RSA
Using RSA in the manner I used for this example would result in a system that would be no harder to break than those famous quotation puzzles in the Sunday paper.
Thus, RSA is commonly only used to encrypt a randomly-generated key for a traditional cipher (the kind where the same key is used for encryption as for decryption), and subsequent communications for that session use the traditional cipher.
The codebook nature of RSA isn’t a problem because there are so many gazillions of potential keys for any decent traditional cipher that there’s no danger of re-using a traditional key with an RSA key.

 RSA-129 article
RSA stands for Ronald Rivest of MIT, Adi Shamir of the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel, and Leonard Adleman of USC, who in 1977 announced a new cryptographic scheme that became known as the RSA public-key system.
To support their claim that such factorization was hard, RSA published several numbers in Scientific American, each of which were the products of two large primes, and offered token prizes for their factorization.
Using the RSA scheme, one's public key is the product of a pair of primes, and the primes themselves are the private key.
