In this paper we present a novel RSA-like cryptosystem. Specifically, we define a novel product that arises from a cubic field connected to the cubic Pell equation. We discuss some interesting properties and remarks about this product that can also be evaluated through a generalization of the Rédei rational functions. We then exploit these results to construct a novel RSA-like scheme that is more secure than RSA in broadcast applications. Moreover, our scheme is robust against the Wiener attack and against other kind of attacks that exploit the knowledge of a linear relation occurring between two plaintexts.
