Hazmat, Python and RSA Encryption

RSA has survived over 40 years and is still used in many applications. With public-key encryption, we generate a key pair: a public key and a private key. If Bob wants to encrypt something for Alice, he will use her public key to encrypt the data, and then she will use her private key to decrypt it. In this case, we will use RSA encryption and use a public key to encrypt, and a private key to decrypt. Overall, in RSA, we generate…
