Keywords:  rivest, adleman, leonard, shamir, ron
A system for public-key cryptography used for encryption and authentication. It was invented in 1977 by Ron Rivest, Adi Shamir, and Leonard Adleman. The system's security depends on the difficulty of factoring the product of two large prime numbers.
Using the encryption algorithm invented by and named after Ron Rivest, Adi Shamir and Leonard Adleman, founders of RSA Security.
A popular encryption and authentication standard that uses asymmetric keys and was developed by Rivest, Sharmir, and Adelman. Based on a public key system, every user has 2 digital keys, one to encrypt information, and the other to decrypt. Authentication of both sender and recipient is achieved with this method.
