Lecture: Alice & bob: Public key cryptography 101

An introduction on how RSA works


An introduction on symetrical and assymetrical encryptions plus an (mathematical) overview on how RSA works.

HTTPS, SSL, SSH, PGP are terms most people know that they are somehow related to encryption. But how does it work? During this talk you will find out why even the most complex encryption algorithms used today are based on very simple concepts. We will dive into the basics of public key encryption, how it works and together with some (simple) examples, give you some insight on encryption in general.

And who the heck are Alice and Bob anyway?
