Crate pumpkin [] [src]

A crate for generating large, cryptographically secure prime numbers. Primes are seeded from the operating system's main source of entropy, ensuring proper randomness.

Primes must be AT LEAST 512-bits long. Attempting to generate a Prime less than 512-bits long will cause a panic.


extern crate pumpkin;

use pumpkin::Prime;

fn main() {
    // Generate 2048-bit primes
    let p = Prime::new(2048);
    let q = Prime::new(2048);

    let n = p * q;
    println!("{}", n); // Some 4096-bit composite number



A cryptographically secure prime number.
