What is the right name for this article? I chose RSA because that is the commonly used term, but perhaps it should be "RSA algorithm" or "RSA cryptosystem" to distinguish it from RSA Corporation (which I think has had several names over the years). Maybe RSA should be a disambiguation page? Also, there are some links to Rivest-Shamir-Adelman. I'd say that is too cumbersome and that should redirect to whatever name we choose for this page.

- Yes, eventually RSA will definitely need to be a dab page. What to call this one, though... hmm. I dunno whether "RSA algorithm" or "RSA cryptosystem" would be best. What do the technical documents about it call it? J. Noel Chiappa 20:13, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
- The original paper does not use "RSA", but says it is describing a "public key cryptosystem". RFC 2437, written by people at RSA Inc., is titled "PKCS #1: RSA Cryptography Specifications Version 2.0" and introduction talks of "public-key cryptography based on the RSA algorithm".
- RSA also stands for the Royal Society of Arts. –Tom Morris 18:16, 30 June 2010 (UTC)
I moved it from "RSA" to "RSA algorithm", created "RSA cryptosystem" and "RSA public key system" as redirects to that, and updated quite a few links. It still needs more links fixed, then "RSA" should become a disambig page. Sandy Harris 00:33, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
