# RSA Algorithm, A great way of Security .

**What is RSA Algorithm ?**

–> RSA stands for Ronald Rivest, Adi Shamir, Leonard Adleman. This are the names of Three MIT Scientists who have developed this Algorithm in 1978.

–> In simple words RSA is a encryption algorithm by which you can generate a Public Key and a Private Key .Now it’s upon you that how you are using this Keys for Encryption and Decryption, You can use a Public Key to Encrypt the Message and Private Key to Decrypt it or you can use it in invert way also.

–> Before talking the Benefits of this Algorithm we should watch how this keys where generated.** Ex.**

⁃ Choose p = 3 and q = 11

⁃ Compute n = p * q = 3 * 11 = 33

⁃ Compute φ(n) = (p – 1) * (q – 1) = 2 * 10 = 20

⁃ Choose…
