To be involed with modern cryptography is to dive willy-nilly into number theory, that is, the study of the natural numbers, one of the most beautiful areas of mathematics. However, we have no intention of becoming deep-sea divers who raise sunken treasure from the mathematical ocean floor, which in any case is unnecessary for cryptographic applications. Our goals are much more modest. On the other hand, there is no limit to the depth of involvement of number theory with cryptography, and many significant mathematicians have made important contributions to this area.
