Is it possible to debug the rsa encrypting algorithm?

Hi,

Yes probably it can be done.  The problem is that the RSA Algorithm uses a unique prime number that is not the same each time when being generated , so you won't get the same results, but there are some individual tries in this field for example you can use the function crypt::RSA which will help in debugging the algorithm ; this is link with further explanation.

Also if you Google the subject, you will find out that many researchers have claimed to be able to manipulate the algorithm, but there is no published software so far, that can help you get through the algorithm.  You will, maybe, need to do it yourself!

Hope this helps !!

It will not be possible for you to debug RSA because for creating the keys that are used for this encryption algorithm, there is the use of random prime numbers. For that reason, you will not be able to generate again same prime numbers, and therefore making it impossible for you to be able to debug the RSA algorithm.

One important point that you should note is that the size of the secret keys that are the encryption algorithm is in bits, and therefore making them larger. An example RSA algorithm will the one that is implemented in the .

NET Compact Framework, and you will find that it can support keys that range between 384 and 16384 bits. Setting this property will automatically affect the strength of this encryption process.
