Need to write out the mathematics of the algorithm.

Added by anon; could somebody verify this?

The Cayley-Purser algorithm is famous, because it was orginally announced that is was a Public-key but it is really a Private-key(one-key,Symmetric key algorithm) cryptosystem, because too much information is leaked in the Cayley-Purser algorithm. -Sarah Flannery, "In Code" It can not securly function as a public and private key cryptosystem.
