The RSA is the most widely deployed public-key cryptosystem and is used for both encryption and digital signature. It is commonly used in securing ecommerce and e-mail, implementing virtual private networks and providing authenticity of electronic documents. It is implemented in most Web servers and browsers, and present in most commercially available security products. In fact, the ubiquity of RSA has placed it at the heart of modern information security. It would not be an overstatement to say that Internet security relies heavily on the security properties of the RSA cryptosystem.
