Illustration of RSA Algorithm: p,q=7,19

This section provides a tutorial example to illustrate how RSA public key encryption algorithm works with 2 small prime numbers 7 and 19.

As the second example to illustrate how RSA public key encryption algorithm works, let's take prime numbers of 7 and 19 as presented by Paul Johnston at http://pajhome.org.uk/crypt/rsa/rsa.html.

Generation the public key and private key with prime numbers of 7 and 19 can be illustrated as:

Given p as 7 Given q as 19 Compute n = p*q: n = 7*19 = 133 Compute m = (p-1)*(q-1): m = 6*18 = 108 Select e, such that e and m are coprime numbers: e = 5 Compute d, such that d*e mod m = 1: d = 65 The public key {n,e} is = {133,5} The private key {n,d} is = {133,65}

With the public key of {133,5}, encryption of a cleartext M represented as number 6 can be illustrated as:

Given public key {n,e} as {133,5} Given cleartext M represented in number as 6 Divide M into blocks: 1 block is enough Compute encrypted block C = M**e mod n: C = 6**5 mod 133 = 7776 mod 133 = 62 The ciphertext c represented in number is 62

With the private key of {133,65}, decryption of the ciphertext represented as number 62 can be illustrated as:

Given private key {n,e} as {133,65} Given ciphertext C represented in number as 62 Divide C into blocks: 1 block is enough Compute encrypted block M = C**d mod n: M = 62**65 mod 133 = 62*62**64 mod 133 = 62*(62**4)**16 mod 133 = 62*(14776336)**16 mode 133 = 62*(14776336 mod 133)**16 mod 133 = 62*(36)**16 mod 133 = 62*(36**4 mod 133)**4 mod 133 = 62*(92)**4 mod 133 = 4441636352 mod 133 = 6 The cleartext M represented in number is 6

Very nice. We are getting the original cleartext 6 back with no problem with the private key.
