[REBOL] Re: RSA Encryption
From: maarten:vrijheid at: 13-Nov-2003 16:29
RSA is asymmetrical: you encrypt with the public key, and the receiving
party decrypts with its private key. You use it normally to exchange a
sessiosn key for a symmetrical block encryptor.
Another application is signing a hash with a private key, then the
receiving party can validate using your public key that the content of a
message has not been tampered with. Choose the length long enough though
(> 1024, preferable 2048).
Does this help?
