RSA-1024 Bit Encryption?

Recommended Posts

A little off-topic, but I noticed in another thread that you have been interested in crytopgrahy for awhile.

I'm just starting to actually get rather interested in it myself. The only exposure I ever had to it was this Abstract Number Theory course which I took in university. Spent about a month studying RSA and it's mechanics.

Anyhow, Wondering if you might have any good / decent links to point me toward with regards to implementing some basic encryption methods? work my way up..

preferably a little more advanced than ROT13 but nothign too hardcore?

thanks!

Take a look in your MSVC++ Win32 SDK documentation. Microsoft actually distributes a very easy to use cryptography SDK that utilizes Windows''s security features, and it performs RSA encryption.

Though keep in mind that CryptoAPI has been found to be predictable, and microsoft has fixed that in their .NET cryptography classes.

The platform SDK docs should be good for a start though, I suppose.

Just to clarify: The random number generation has been found to be predictable.
