We are going to devote most of our attention in this talk to the RSA Public Key Cryptosystem because it not only remains unbroken but it has some other useful features for digital signatures and authentication. We will briefly mention some other methods which have been compromised to some degree, and one, McEliece's which has not, but which are still valid when both keys are kept secret and some have other features which may be useful.
