Clifford Christopher Cocks CB FRS (born 28 December 1950) is a British mathematician and cryptographer.In 1973 he invented a public key crytography algorithm now known as the RSA algorithm, while working at the United Kingdom Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ). The idea was classified information and his insight remained hidden for 24 years, despite being independently invented by Rivest, Shamir, and Adleman in 1977. Public Key Cryptography using prime factorization is now part of nearly every internet transaction.

  • Clifford Christopher Cocks, CB, (* 28. Dezember 1950) ist ein britischer Mathematiker und Kryptograph am GCHQ. Er entdeckte den weit verbreiteten Verschlüsselungsalgorithmus, der nun unter dem Namen RSA bekannt ist, etwa drei Jahre bevor er unabhängig von Ronald Rivest, Adi Shamir und Leonard Adleman am MIT entwickelt wurde. Diese Errungenschaft wird ihm nicht allgemein anerkannt, da seine Arbeit per definitionem einer Geheimhaltungsstufe unterlag und deshalb damals nicht veröffentlicht wurde. (de)

Il n'a généralement pas été reconnu pour cette réussite parce que son travail était par définition classé secret, donc pas rendu public à l'époque. * Portail de la cryptologie Portail de la cryptologie (fr)
  • Clifford Christopher Cocks, CB, (28 de dezembro de 1950) é um matemático e criptógrafo britânico do Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) que inventou o algoritmo de criptografia amplamente utilizado hoje conhecido como RSA, cerca de três anos antes dele ser desenvolvido independentemente por Rivest , Shamir e Adleman pesquisadores do MIT. Porém, Cocks não é reconhecido por sua realização porque o seu trabalho era sujeito a um nível de sigilo e não foi publicado na época. (pt)
