A new paper on the security of RSA

Variations and Attacks on the RSA Algorithm

Abstract: Stallings and Brown of Computer Security: Principles and Practice write, “One of the first public-key schemes was developed in 1977 by Ron Rivest, Adi Shamir, and Len Adleman at MIT and first published in 1978. The RSA scheme has since reigned supreme as the most widely accepted and implemented approach to public-key encryption”([7] p.58). This paper offers insight into the work that has been developed around the RSA algorithm since its creation. Namely, the algorithm, attacks on the algorithm, and updates to the algorithm are discussed.
