Euler's Totient Function

Cryptography studies ways to share secrets securely, so that even eavesdroppers can't extract any information from what they hear or network traffic they intercept. One of the most popular cryptographic algorithms called RSA is based on unique integer factorization, Chinese Remainder Theorem and fast modular exponentiation. In this module, we are going to study these properties and algorithms which are the building blocks for RSA. In the next module we will use these building blocks to implement RSA and also to implement some clever attacks against RSA and decypher some secret codes.
