Problem related to a generalized birthday paradox Hello, I am invoking your help on a problem I cannot solve. Consider 16 sets of 2^{23} 32-bit random integers. We denote these sets S_{i,j} such that S is a 4x4 matrix, whose cells are the sets. Thus, for 0<i,j<3, the set S_{i,j} contains 2^{23} 32-bit random elements. A 32-bit integer is viewed as a couple of ... 18 Jun 2010 04:48

Shamir Secret Sharing Implementation Query Hi, Say my secret is an n-bit number, under Shamir's scheme I need a prime, the first prime larger than the secret, then I work in GF(p).
