standard. It is not interoperable with earlier versions of
Nettle. Thanks to Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos. To easily
differentiate at compile time, sha3.h defines the constant
NETTLE_SHA3_FIPS202.
* Fix corner-case carry propagation bugs affecting elliptic
curve operations on the curves secp_256r1 and secp_384r1 on
certain platforms, including x86_64. Reported by Hanno Böck.
New features:
* New functions for RSA private key operations, identified by
the "_tr" suffix, with better resistance to side channel
attacks and to hardware or software failures which could
break the CRT optimization. See the Nettle manual for
details. Initial patch by Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos.
* New functions nettle_version_major, nettle_version_minor, as
a run-time variant of the compile-time constants
NETTLE_VERSION_MAJOR and NETTLE_VERSION_MINOR.
