Syngress Publishing Announces Publication of
"BigNum Math: Implementing Cryptographic Multiple Precisions Arithmetic"
Book Shows How to Implement Efficient Multiple Precision Algorithms
Contact: Amy Pedersen
Rockland, MA--Syngress Publishing, Inc., today announced
the publication of "BigNum Math" (ISBN: 1597491128), by Tom St Denis.
Arbitrary precision arithmetic, or "bignum math," is a technique that
allows computer programs to perform calculations on extremely large
numbers limited only by the available memory of the computer running the
program. It is essential for implementing public key algorithms such as
RSA, DSA, and elliptic curve cryptography.
According to Tom St Denis, "The ability to perform calculations with large
integers is essential for modern computer security algorithms. That is,
the ability to add, subtract, multiply, and perform other useful
computations with numbers measuring hundreds of digits in length is
integral for security (like cryptography). Unfortunately, modern
programming languages do not have the native ability to perform work with
numbers this large. This book introduces the reader to the subject of
'bignum' mathematics and develops a usable library of algorithms.
Throughout this book I show the reader all the knowledge required from how
to add large integers, to how to multiply them, and right into the key
algorithms required by modern security algorithms."
PRICE: $49.95 U.S.
PAGE COUNT: 300 PP
