The RSA cryptosystem, invented by Ron Rivest, Adi Shamir and Ten Adleman was first publicized in the August 1977 issue of Scientific American. The cryptosystem is most commonly used for providing privacy and ensuring authenticity of digital data. These days RSA is deployed in many commercial systems. It is used by web servers and browsers to secure web traffic, it is used to ensure privacy and authenticity of e-mail, it is used to secure remote login sessions, and it is at the heart of electronic credit-card payment systems. In short, RSA is frequently used in applications where security of digital data is a concern. Symmetric key distribution problem is solved by it.

Goal of this work is to derive a new prime generation method with the help of current system time. That is why the method generates a unique prime every time the program is executed.
