<h1> Nettle release plans </h1>
<p> This is an attempt at defining a development target for
Nettle-3.2, inspired by similar pages for recent GMP releases.

<h1> Plans for nettle-3.2 </h1>
<h2> New features </h2>
<p class='should'>
<p class='done'>
"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'>
<p class='postponed'>
Add larger "safe" curves, e.g., M-383, curve41417 and E-521.
</p>
<p class='wish'>
<p class='postponed'>
Add functions for converting ECC points to and from ANSI x9.62.
</p>
<p class='wish'>
<p class='postponed'>
Use side-channel silent GMP functions for RSA and DSA. May require
additional interface changes, to use mpn functions.
</p>
<p class='should'>
<p class='postponed'>
Side-channel silent mem_equalp.
</p>
<h2> Optimizations </h2>
<p class='wish'>
<p class='postponed'>
Assembly optimizations for ARMv8 (64-bit).
</p>
<p class='wish'>
<p class='postponed'>
Further optimizations of curve25519 and EdDSA, in particular,
radix 51 modp operations,
and <a href='http://www.hyperelliptic.org/EFD/g1p/auto-twisted-extended-1.html#addition-add-2008-hwcd-3'>more

<h2> Miscellaneous </h2>
<p class='wish'>
<p class='postponed'>
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='should'>
<p class='done'>
Update SHA3 documentation.
</p>
<p class='done'>
Update and extend RSA documentation.
