X-WR-CALDESC:20 September 1983: Ronald Rivest\, Adi Shamir\, and Leonard A
dleman received a patent for the encryption algorithm RSA (named after the
inventors). Pictured in the photo - left to right: Adi Shamir\, Ron Rive

Public Key Encryption': U.S. Patent 4\,405\,829 was awarded to the Ma
ssachusetts Institute of Technology on September 20\, 1983 for its 'Crypto
graphic communications system and method.' The three inventors\, which the
patent is named after\, are Ronald Rivest\, Adi Shamir\, and Leonard Adle
man. The patent expires 17 years from the date it was issued\, Sept 21\, 2
000.\n\nThe RSA cryptosystem\, as described in the patent\, is a public-ke
y cryptosystem that offers both encryption and digital signatures. The cry
ptosystem is able to encrypt and create digital signatures by taking advan
tage of the fact that factoring is a 'hard' mathematical problem. Factorin
g is actually one of three commonly used 'hard problems' for cryptography\
; the other two are the discrete logarithm problem and elliptic curves.\n
\nThe RSA cryptosystem has been incorporated into popular products such as
Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and Secure Shell (SSH) as well as numerous othe
r commercial products. \n\nIn 2002\, the Association for Computing Machine
ry awarded Rivest\, Shamir\, and Adleman the Turing Award - also known as
the 'Nobel Prize of Computing.' LEARN MORE
