Cryptanalysis of RSA with constrained keys

Abderrahmane Nitaj

Abstract: Let $n=pq$ be an RSA modulus with unknown prime factors and $F$ any function for which there exists an integer $u\neq 0$ satisfying $F(u)\approx n$ and $pu$ or $qu$ is computable from $F(u)$ and $n$. We show that choosing a public key exponent $e$ for which there exist positive integers $X$, $Y$ such that $\left\vert eY-XF(u)\right\vert$ and $Y$ are suitably small, then the system is insecure.
