Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

First off, not sure which forum maybe the most relevent, hopefully this one is the most suited?

I do not have much of a background in maths, so bare with me.

I am trying to implement a Modular exponentiation encryption method, I am using

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modular_exponentiation

the encryption I am happy with, but what I am stuck on is the decryption method.

Can anyone point me to a good bit of text, that explains the method in simple terms.

Thank you.

P.S. apologies if this belongs in the comp science forums.
