<h1> Nettle release plans </h1>
<p> This is an attempt at defining a development target for
Nettle-3.1, inspired by similar pages for recent GMP releases.

<h2> Interface changes </h2>
<p class='done'>
Review public functions in ecc.h, move some to ecc-internal.h, to
enable sane support for other types of curves.
</p>
<h2> New features </h2>
<p class='done'>
Add support for curve25519.<span class='should'> What about the
"x25519" name?</span>
</p>
<p class='done'>
Update chacha-poly1305 to
the <a href='https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-irtf-cfrg-chacha20-poly1305-08'>current
draft</a>.
</p>
<p class='done'>
Add support for Ed25519 signatures.
</p>
<p class='done'>
Interface tweaks. EdDSA, Curve25519, base64.
<p class='should'>
"CRT-hardened" RSA secret key operations. Check that the result of
rsa_compute_root is correct. Should be easy for the
rsa_pkcs1_sign_tr and rsa_decrypt_tr functions, other RSA
functions would need interface changes.
</p>
<p class='wish'>
Add larger "safe" curves, e.g., M-383, curve41417 and E-521.
......@@ -62,19 +47,13 @@
Use side-channel silent GMP functions for RSA and DSA. May require
additional interface changes, to use mpn functions.
</p>
<p class='done'>
Make it possible to build nettle and hogweed using mini-gmp.
</p>
<p class='postpone'>
<p class='should'>
Side-channel silent mem_equalp.
</p>
<h2> Optimizations </h2>
<p class='done'>
Support for using AES acceleration.
</p>
<p class='postponed'>
<p class='wish'>
Assembly optimizations for ARMv8 (64-bit).

<h2> Miscellaneous </h2>
<p class='postpone'>
<p class='wish'>
Use more functions from GMP-6 and later, when available:
mpn_sec_add_1, mpn_sec_tabselect, mpn_sec_invert, mpn_cnd_swap,
...
</p>
<h2> Documentation </h2>
<p class='done'>
Document curve25519.
</p>
<p class='done'>
Document EdDSA.
<p class='should'>
Update SHA3 documentation.
</p>
<h2> Build system </h2>
<p class='done'>
Support for fat binaries on ARM and x86_64, selecting code at
runtime depending on cpu capabilities.
</p>
<p class='done'>
Fix the handling of optional C source files with make dist.
</p>
<p class='done'>
Stop using the nonstandard <tt>.po</tt> extension.
</p>
<p class='done'>
Reconsider assembly make rules, going back to an .asm.o: rule
might work better with Solaris' make.
</p>
<p class='postponed'>
Update AX_CREATE_STDINT_H to the latest version.
