Hello again...

i was wondering if anyone could suggest a pre-built bignum library? preferrably optimized for speed (for something between a PMMX to PIII) rather than size. i tried to use GMP, after doing a search here, but can't build it. perhaps this question can be added to the FAQ :)

thanks! sorry if i posted this in the wrong place... Algos seems to be for libraries that are written, rather than a request for one :)

Okay... i managed to build miracl (thanks to their batch files)... but can't figure out how to interface /w ASM, since i'm not a regular user of C, and this is nothing like translating API... anyone have a sample program for a miracl program written in assembly (even just adding two numbers would be great)? Thanks :)

And no, this is not homework or anything important ;) just trying to write a small command-line RSA program that supports very large keys.

google for the egoiste's rsa keygens
it's all in asm!

Thanks :) looking it up now!

Hm... Um... doesn't seem to be what i'm looking for... and seems kinda sketchy, too

GMP = GNU MP = http://www.swox.com/gmp/

Duelists stuff might be "sketchy" in the context of this board, but you can learn from it anyway. It does show some effective use of RSA :)

you can forget the cracking stuff.

just cut and paste his bignumber "POWMOD" source code and you're ok!

yup... but i can't build it - or interface it to assembly! :(

thanks guys :) i'll go look back at powmod ;)

Did you get any further with interfacing MIRACL or GMP?
There must be some sleeker way than ripping the whole stuff (just took a look at miracl's xgcd, that's one helluva listing)...
