DNA Computing-based Cryptography 3
DNA computing has a great deal of advantage over conventional silicon-basedcomputing. DNA computers can store billions of times more data than personal computer. DNAcomputers have the ability to work in a massively parallel fashion, performing many calculationssimultaneously. DNA molecules that provide the input can also provide all the necessaryoperational energy.DNA cryptography is new field of cryptography arising with DNA computing research inrecent years. DNA computing theories can be applied in cryptography and it is a very emergingfield. Though still in primitive level, it applies in many areas and solved some hard problemssuccessfully. It can realize several security technologies such as Encryption, Steganography,Signature and Authentication by using DNA molecular as information medium. The art of cryptography security is to make sure that anybody cannot get the message, by encoding plaintext. This paper use a new way to show how cryptography works with DNA computing, it cantransmit message securely and effectively. The RSA algorithm belongs to asymmetric keycryptography, it is used in this paper connecting with DNA computing technique to encryptmessage.In this report first I introduced the basic idea of DNA computing, and then discuss theinformation security technology (DNA-based Cryptography) in DNA computing.
