The numbers of primes generated by two prime generation methods are evaluated. The methods considered generate strong primes for cryptographic use in the RSA public-key cryptosystem. The results show that they generate sufficient primes to resist cryptanalytic attack by prime enumeration for the sizes of primes used to guard against factorisation attack.
