Abstract

The material presented in this Chapter, discusses several relevant mathematical concepts, fundamental for the understanding of elliptic curve public-key cryptosystems, the RSA algorithm, etc.. This material is also useful for a better understanding of the basic operations involved in the specifications of Rijndael algorithm (new Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)).
