The 1s and 0s of Cryptography: Forrest Rae will discuss the RSA algorithm in March’s Geek Lunch, hosted by the Gorge Tech Alliance.
The RSA algorithm is one of the most popular encryption methods in use today. It’s used in everything from web browsers, chat applications, email, and VPNs, yet few people take the time to learn how it really works. It’s simple enough that one can learn it’s inner workings by performing an encryption operation by hand, using small numbers. Join us for a step-by-step walk through of an encryption operation using the RSA algorithm.
