Unformatted text preview: recognized as the founders of Public Key Cryptography. recognized RSA Algorithm Ron Rivest, Adi Shamir, Len Adleman – found the functions and published the results in 1978: D[E[m]] = m = E[D[m]] Most widely accepted and implemented approach to Most widely public key encryption public Block cipher where m = plaintext ; and c =ciphertext are integers, between 0 <= m , c <= n-1 for some n n-1 This is the E[ ] Following form: This is the D[ ] c = me mod n mod m = cd mod n mod Public key is (n,e). Private key is (n,d). RSA: Choosing keys 1. Choose two large prime numbers p, q. (e.g., 1024 bits each) 2. Compute n = pq, z = (p-1)(q-1) 3. Choose e (with e<n) that has no common factors with z. (e, z are “relatively prime”). 4. Choose d such that ed-1 is exactly divisible by z. (in other words: ed –1 = K * z for some integer K , i.e. , ed = K * z + 1, in other words: If ed is divided by z, the remainder is equal to 1, i.e., ed mod z = 1 ). 5. Public key is (n,e). Private key is (n,d). K ub p K riv p RSA: Encryption, decryption 0. Given (n,e) and (n,d) as computed above 1. To encrypt bit pattern, m, compute e c = m e mod n (i.e., remainder when m is divided by n) 2. To decrypt received bit pattern, c, compute d m = c d mod n (i.e., remainder when c is divided by n) Magic d m = (m e mod n) mod n happens! c RSA example: Bob chooses p=5, q=7. Then n=5*7 =35, z=(5-1)*(7-1) =24 e=5 (so e, z relatively prime). d=29 (so ed-1 = 5*29 – 1 =144 which is exactly divisible by z.) encrypt: decrypt: letter m me D 4 1024 = 29 * 35 + 9 c 9 d c c = me mod n 9 m = cd mod n letter 4 D 929= 4710128697246……… Use the following property to compute : 929 mod 35 (a * b) mod n = [(a mod n) * (b mod n)] mod n, i.e. 929 mod 35 = 910+10+9 mod 35 = [(910 mod 35) * (910 mod 35) * (99 mod 35) ] mod 35 = (16 * 16 * 29) mod 35 = 4 d m = (m e mod n) mod n RSA: Why is that Useful number theory result: If p,q prime and n = pq, then: y y mod (p-1)(q-1) x mod n = x mod n e (m mod n) d mod n = med mod n =m ed mod (p-1)(q-1) mod n (using number theory result above) 1 = m mod n (since we chose ed to be divisible by (p-1)(q-1) with remainder 1 ) = m (since m < n, thus m mod n = m) RSA: Important properties It is infeasible to determine d given e and n infeasible and K (K (m)) = m = K (K (m)) priv pub pub priv use private key use public key first, followed first, fol...
