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."



ISBN: 1597491128

PRICE: $49.95 U.S.
