In RSA public key cryptosystem suppose n = p ∗ q where p and q are primes. (e, n) and (d, n) are public and private keys respectively. Let M be an integer such that o < M < n and φ(n) = (p – 1)(q – 1). Which of the following equations represent RSA public key cryptosystem ?

```     I. C ≡ Me(mod n)
M ≡ (C)d(mod n)
II.ed ≡ 1(mod n)
III.ed ≡ 1(mod φ(n))
IV. C ≡ Me(mod φ(n))
M ≡ Cd(mod φ(n))```

Codes :
(A) I and II
(B) I and III
(C) II and III
(D) I and IV

Explanation: I is true because

```Encrypted-Text = (Plain-Text)e mod n
Plain-Text = (Encrypted-Text)d mod n ```

III is true because

```   d-1 = e mod ϕ(n)
Or ed = 1 mod ϕ(n)```

II and IV is wrong.
So, option (B) is correct.
