An efficient variant of the RSA cryptosystem

Cesar Alison Monteiro Paix„o

Abstract: We describe an efficient combination of two variants of RSA cryptosystem (MPrime and Rebalanced RSA) analysed by Boneh and Schacham. The decryption process resultant is (for 2048-bits moduli) about 8 times faster than that presented by Quisquater and Couvreur and about 27 times faster than original cryptosystem.

Category / Keywords: public-key cryptography / RSA, efficient implementation
