 Exploring RSA Encryption

Linux Journal tells us about RSA Encryption.

"To set up RSA encryption, the main thing you need is a table of prime numbers. Begin by selecting two prime numbers at random. When the rsakeys.bc program asks for p and q, give it the two primes you selected. Of course, any numbers can be used for practice. Primes, especially large primes, make it more difficult for an eavesdropper to decrypt your message."
