Number Theory: Why Cryptography Works by Jeffrey Rabovsky
Recorded August 02, 2016 at ChicagoRuby: Downtown
Why does cryptography actually work? Cryptography is based on number theory. This presentation will touch on things like: what Number Theory is, why primes are important, why factoring is hard, how this allows us to build cryptosystems (e.g. RSA), and maybe some unsolved problems (there are many!) in Number Theory.
