RSA Public-Key Cryptography

The Rivest-Shamir-Adleman (RSA) encryption algorithm is a public-key cryptography (PKC) model that is used for a variety of data transmission protocols on computer networks and blockchains. To encrypt and decrypt data, RSA, like all asymmetric cryptography models, employs a public and private key pair system. To achieve the desired result, the RSA encryption framework factors two prime numbers and an auxiliary value. The RSA cryptographic algorithm was created in 1977 and is named after its three main creators: Ron Rivest, Adi Shamir, and Leonard Adleman.
