Click to activate, click play button If you're new to cryptography, I should explain that the literature is full of references to Bob, Alice and Eve, where Bob and Alice represent two people wishing to exchange a secret, and Eve is the "evil principle," always trying to listen in and discover why Bob and Alice are sneaking around, using encryption. I call Eve the "evil principle," but of course cryptography wouldn't even be a discipline were it not for the pressure she faithfully and consistently puts on Alice and Bob et al to remain on top of their game. I recommend Donald Knuth's discussion of RSA in Vol. 3 of Note that Alice's computer is able to generate a secret
