About private key RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone, I have read "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSA" and understood the calculation process of private key and pubic key. But there is a puzzle here, in that article, the private key stands for two big digits, however, when I open a private key file, what I see is a unregular string, is this a special form represented because of the wide range of that two digits ?

    any idea is pleasure ^_^

  • You are probably looking at something encoded in a base other than 10.
