By visualizing the plaintext as a set of numbers, for instance the ASCII codes of each character, or group of characters. If we denote any given number in this sequence as m. The resultant cipher text is also a set of numbers, any of which is denoted by the variable c

From one of the Euler’s theorems, we know that for all integers m,

med = m (mod n)

Therefore, provided that 0 <= m < n,

med (mod n) = m

To encrypt a message m, we perform the following algorithm:

F(m) = me (mod n) = c where F(m) denotes the encryption algorithm.

To decipher the cipher text c with the private key d, we perform the following algorithm:

F(c) = cd (mod n) = med (mod n) = m1 (mod n) = m
where F( ) denotes the decryption algorithm.

The variable ‘e’ is known as the public key, and ‘d’ is the private key.

‘n’ is used in both encryption and decryption.

Sample application

This application demonstrates how to implement RSA in .NET from mathematical principles. It is important to note that character-by-character RSA encryption is just as susceptible to frequency analysis as any simple symmetric cipher. Therefore it is extremely important to pre-encrypt the message using cryptanalysis-resistant encryption, such as the book cipher. The symmetric key can be packaged along with the encrypted message prior to RSA encryption. This pre-encryption step is omitted from this example for simplicity.

Start a new project as before, and draw a form with 6 standard text boxes, and three multi-line textboxes. Name them, txtP, txtQ, txtPhi, txtE, txtN, txtD respectively. The three multi-line textboxes should be named txtPlain, txtEncrypt, and txtDecrypt

Drag three buttons onto the form; name them cmdKeyGen, cmdEncrypt, and cmdDecrypt

Add the following public variables to the code
