The intended receiver can decrypt the message using his/her private key as generally done in RSA algorithms.
Using the initials of these three inventors, it was named the RSA algorithm. It takes advantage of computing difficulty in factoring large numbers.
It's also faster than using the RSA algorithm, which employs large keys or certificates that increase the time needed to connect a call by up to 15 seconds.
Gpcode.ac, first detected in January 2006, was the first piece of ransomware to use a sophisticated encryption algorithm, creating a 56-bit key with the RSA algorithm.

Certicom specializes in elliptic-curve cryptography (ECC), a public-key scheme similar to the RSA algorithm developed by MIT professors Ronald Rivest, Adi Shamir and Len Adleman.
Both types of computers are expected to have the power to crack cryptographic schemes, such as the RSA algorithm commonly used in Internet security, including credit card transactions.
