Notes on RSA algorithm

Image reproduced from Ref. [9]. In this post, i will note down my learning and understanding for the RSA algorithm. This will not go into deep details about RSA. Instead, only basics will be covered. In fact, most of the discussion presented here has already been covered in the relevant Wiki page: Click Me ! Basically, I will just follow the Wiki page and put in my understanding along the way. Specially, when we go into the working example of RSA algorithm, detailed explanation about how the algorithm is realized in practice will be presented, with reference to some outstanding external resources. Finally, a bit understanding will be presented for why encryption and decryption through RSA algorithm is difficult or even impossible to decipher in practice and thus considered to be secure enough nowadays. ☝ Keys generation
