dc.description.abstract The RSA data encryption algorithm was developed by Ronald Rivest, Adi Shamir and Leonard Adelman in 1978 and is considered a de facto standard for public-key encryption. This computer science thesis demonstrates the author's ability to engineer a software system based on the RSA algorithm. This adaptation of the RSA encryption process was devised to be used on any type of data file, binary as well as text. In the process of developing this computer system, software tools were constructed that allow the exploration of the components of the RSA encryption algorithm. The RSA algorithm was further interpolated as a method of providing software licensing, that is, a manner in which authorization to execute a particular piece of software can be determined at execution time. This document summarizes the RSA encryption process and describes the tools utilized to construct a computer system based on this algorithm.
