So How Does Padding Work in RSA?

Basically, PKCS#v1.5 is bad, OAEP is good

While the RSA algorithm has required an increasing size of modulus in order to keep up with the advancement of computing hardware, it has continually been affected by the usage of its padding. So, let’s dive in, and see if we can understand why this is the case.
