The RSA system is widely employed and achieves good performance and high security. In this paper, the authors use Verilog to implement a 16-bit RSA block cipher system. The whole implementation includes three parts: key generation, encryption and decryption process. The key generation stage aims to generate a pair of public key and private key, and then the private key will be distributed to receiver according to certain key distribution schemes. Data security is achieved after the 64-bit input data are block encrypted by RSA public key. The cipher text can be decrypted at receiver side by RSA secret key. These are simulated in NC LAUNCH and hardware is synthesized using RTL Compiler of CADENCE.
