Also nice books and "must-have" to read if you are interested in
random numbers and primes are:
 Donald E. Knuth
The Art of Computer Programming
 Cormen, Leiserson, Rivest
Introduction to Algorithms
In  you will find a complete chapter about random numbers and a nice
section about factoring into primes.
In  there is a section about RSA, a section about primality testing and
a section about integer factorization.
Beside these points the noted books provide a nice source about all kinds
of intersting stuff. But be warned, especially  is not to read in the
train or durring a coffee break.
