In 1987 arose the concern of the U.S. government after Professor Adi Shamir of
the Weizmann Institute, invented a smart card that can encrypt information.
36 years later, Edward Snordn reveals that the U.S. government paid the
company RSA (founded by Adi Shamir. Shamir is the S in the name of the
company but now no longer belonged to him and his colleagues) $ 10 million
to leave the encryption is weak and the bug so they can break it whenever
they want.
