# Numerical example of encryption using the RSA method

Please see the file below about encoding a birthday.

For example the birthday is 250692, how to calculate?

Exercise 2: Encode your date of birth (format DDMMYY) using the public key:

n = 536813567

a = 7582663

(Use the correspondence 0 <-> 0, 1 <-> 1, ..., 9 <-> 9 and work in base 10 to encode this message.)

#### Solution Preview

The theory of RSA encryption states the following

Choose two large numbers p and q and compute n = p*q

Compute phi = (p-1)*(q-1)

Choose a prime number a that is coprime with phi

Compute the multiplicative inverse of phi w.r.t. i.e. d = ...

#### Solution Summary
