Public Key Cryptography is a hugely important invention. It underpins the security (specifically the confidentiality) of most online commerce transactions. Whilst it’s a complex subject and the subject of highly intricate and complex research to make the Internet a secure place to do business, the fundamentals of public key cryptography aren’t that hard to grasp.
The presentation linked to from this entry was originally part of a separate presentation I did on Bitcoin a little while ago, however in the end it felt like two separate subjects so I split it out.
So, public key cryptography in 6 slides (well, 8 if you include the title and closing slide). Hopefully you’ll find the information contained within informative, consumable and, of course, correct!
