A Proposed Cryptographic Algorithm Provides Better Data Security

RSA algorithm uses integer factorization as the backbone of data security while Diffie-Hellman Algorithm uses Discrete Logarithm to provide platform for secure key exchange. In this paper, the authors provide algorithm to merge both of them to provide a user with even higher level of data security. Actually, their intent is to secure data of smaller as well as larger size by obtaining one randomly chosen key pair from set of RSA keys and one randomly chosen secret key using Diffie-Hellman algorithm and then applying RSA encryption to make even public components of Diffie-Hellman algorithm inaccessible for any eavesdropper freely.
