Proportion of primes generated by strong prime methods

Shawe-Taylor, J. (1992) Proportion of primes generated by strong prime methods Electronics Letters, 28, (2), pp. 135-136.

Record type: Article


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.
