The Security is requested to relocate paramount information across the networks. To protect the confidential data from hacking, this paper describes a process to increase the security of the RSA algorithm by creating additional layer protection for it using Hermite polynomials which will be represented as a square matrix, its calculation is not complicated. In the RSA process, we need to choose very large numbers that lead to complex operations which require a long computation time, while in proposed encryption due to Hermite key we don't need that because two layers of encryption give robust safeness to the ciphertext from dangers of hackers due to the hard of breakable.
