Prime numbers in Computer Security - 2011

​At High School I took the International Baccalaureate diploma. For the diploma we had to write an Extended Essay or a Research Paper in a topic.

I wrote my Extended Essay in Computer Science, specifically my title was: "Analysis of prime numbers as used in computer security by Turing machines in the 2nd decade of the 21st century and using BigO notation to study the efficiency of prime number generating algorithms and evaluating it as a threat to computer security".

I wrote about this topic because I was always curious how Prime Numbers played a role in Computer Security, and how individuals are able to use these prime number generators to crack codes.
