perl-Crypt-Primes - Provable prime number generator for cryptographic applications

|Vendor:||Fedora Project <http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla>|
This module implements Ueli Maurer's algorithm for generating large provable primes and secure parameters for public-key cryptosystems. The generated primes are almost uniformly distributed over the set of primes of the specified bitsize and expected time for generation is less than the time required for generating a pseudo-prime of the same size with Miller-Rabin tests. Detailed description and running time analysis of the algorithm can be found in Maurer's paper, "Fast Generation of Prime Numbers and Secure Public-Key Cryptographic Parameters" (1994).
