[ Changed 24th September 1997 ]
In 1978, Rivest, Shamir and Adleman introduced the public-key cryptosystem RSA. Thereafter, it was extended to Lucas sequences and elliptic curves. In this talk, we will analyse the security of these cryptosystems in given contexts. In particular, some major known attacks against RSA-type systems will be reviewed. We will also see how these attacks can be avoided.
NOTE: the time and the place are nonstandard for a security seminar.
