The hF2 package

[Tags:bsd3, deprecated, library]
Deprecated. in favor of eccrypto

This library implements polynomials on Binary Fields F(2^e), a subform of Finite Fields F(p^n) also known as Galois Fields GF(p^n). It is intended as a backend for cryptographic use and the code should be timing attack resistant.

Readme for hF2

Readme for hF2-0.2

This library was created as an offspring to hecc, the Haskell library for Elliptic Curve Cryptography, but it should be more general than that.
The aim is to have one (pure, Haskell) implementation for (binary) finite field arithmetic which is suitable for practical use in most cases.
