I would like to recieve corrections, or ideas on how to improve the
diagram so it is self-explanatory.

I think that the first thing to do is choose some other Random
numbers.. they caused some confusion at first about how much info Evil
Eye had. The second thing I would do is put into the Evil Eye info
what he knows (assuming he knows the equation being used etc). This
would show at the end that he doesnt know the secret key but has to
guess at what either XA or XB is.
