# long to_bytes python how to use it

from Crypto.Util.number import long_to_bytes print long_to_bytes(126943972912743)Outputstring

**Here is what the above code is Doing:**

1. It’s taking the ciphertext and converting it to a long integer.

2. It’s taking the private key and converting it to a long integer.

3. It’s taking the modulus and converting it to a long integer.

4. It’s taking the long integer representation of the ciphertext and raising it to the power of the private key.

5. It’s taking the result of the previous step and modding it by the modulus.

6. It’s converting the result of the previous step to a string.
