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.
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.
