Event Timeline

  • Possible improvements for RSA in libgcrypt: T3264: Possible RSA improvement, T3269: (Constant-time) modular reduction
    • libgcrypt is fast (average), but it's far from constant-time.
      • reduction is fast, because it's tuned for average performance, and it omits computations.
      • exponentiation is fast by sliding.
    • constant-time means that it runs at worst performance. So, choice of algorithm may change.
  • FYI: I'll update my router in home, and possibly, I'll change my MUA to mu4e.
