Today I was speaking to a friend of mine, and he brought up something called Riemann's Hypothesis. He told me that it was a concept relating to the distribution of primes and has yet to be proven, and is evidently somehow related to modern financial security systems.

However, upon researching the topic I've found very little in the area of practical application of the Hypothesis... and add to the fact I find the hypothesis confusing to understand.

Would anyone care to explain the hypothesis to me in layman's terms, and what it means holistically speaking?
