The problem is, that both factors have to be quite large to get nice examples. p = 5 q = 7 xy = 4*6+1 = 25 x=5 y=5 You see, with smaller factors, x and y are equal or 1 and xy. But a larger set of factors would require a serious amount of calculations. :-)) So, does somebody have a nice example for the RSA algorithm ready?? bye, Peter - ----- Peter Simons, Germany Bye's First Law of Model Railroading: Anytime you wish to demonstrate something, the number of faults is proportional to the number of viewers.
