Crympix: Cryptographic multiprecision library
MetadataShow full item record
This paper delineates the results gained throughout the development of a cryptographic multiprecision1 integer library, CRYMPIX. To obtain the know-how for cryptographic computation and thus being able to create the high level cryptographic protocols in an in-housefashion are the main reasons of this development. CRYMPIX is mainly designed to supply code readability and portability plus an increased performance over other similar libraries. The whole work is achieved by detailed investigation of current algorithms and multi-precision libraries. The selected algorithms are discussed by means of efficiency and various implementation techniques. The comparative performance measurements of CRYMPIX against other multiprecision libraries show that the overall performance of CRYMPIX is not behind its predecessors if not superior.
