RSA encryption is an Algorithm understood by so few people and used by many. In hopes to help that large percentage understand RSA Encryption better I wrote this explanation. If you ever visit a https site chances are you are using RSA encryption to encrypt or scramble the data sent over the internet. Since you could be sending important information like a credit card number it is imperative that you encrypt the data. The important thing is that we want to do this encryption process without requiring secret keys that both the sender and the recipient must posses. That’s where a system that uses a “Public Key” comes in handy.
