    elgamal cryptosystem

    decrypt the message (2161,660), (2161,1284), (2161,1467) encrypted using the elgamal cryptosystem with public key (2713,5,193) corresponding to the private key 17.

    You probably understand RSA, DES, AES, & ELGAMAL, so I'm wondering the purpose of the question.
    With such a short message you could work this out without a calculator (somewhat tedious, but do able).


    ...wait a moment...!
    You are looking for someone to explain elgamal...

    RSA cryptosystem : p=q

    Hi !!

    I have a cryptosystem ( supposely RSA ), such that :

    p=q.

    I wanted to know how i am suppose to compute phi(n) and the private key.

    It's the first time that i encounter such a cryptosystem, usually p and q are relatively primes. Please help me, it's for an important assignment of mine ...
