<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='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 class='postponed'>
Add larger "safe" curves, e.g., M-383, curve41417 and E-521.
<p class='wish'>
Add larger "safe" curves, e.g., M-383, curve41417, curve448 and
<p class='postponed'>
<p class='wish'>
Add functions for converting ECC points to and from ANSI x9.62.
<p class='postponed'>
<p class='wish'>
Use side-channel silent GMP functions for RSA and DSA. May require
additional interface changes, to use mpn functions.
<p class='postponed'>
<p class='wish'>
Side-channel silent mem_equalp.
<h2> Optimizations </h2>
<p class='postponed'>
<p class='wish'>
Assembly optimizations for ARMv8 (64-bit).
<p class='postponed'>
<p class='wish'>
Further optimizations of curve25519 and EdDSA, in particular,
radix 51 modp operations,
and <a href=''>more
<a href=''>more
efficient</a> point addition.
<h2> Miscellaneous </h2>
<p class='postponed'>
<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,
