In this paper, we will examine the NTRU Public Key Cryptosystem. The NTRU cryptosystem was created by Joseph Silverman, Jeffery Hoffstein, and Jill Pipher in 1996. This system uses truncated polynomial rings to encrypt and decrypt data. It was recently released into the public domain in 2013. This paper will describe how this cryptosystem works and give a basic understanding on how to encrypt and decrypt using this system.
