DIONS will offer strong security by integrating a fully fledged RSA cryptosystem (using a 2048 bits long key).
In the RSA cryptosystem, we can get the private key d and the public key e and n, then the field m of the digital certificate is: r = [(H(m)).
RSA cryptosystem uses a public key and a private key, which form an RSA key pair.
The RSA cryptosystem - introduced by Rivest, Shamir, and Adlement in 1977 - relies for its security on the difficulty of working out the factors dividing large integers.
The RSA Cryptosystem is used in over 100 million copies of messaging, groupware, email, and Internet-based applications.
