Goldbach’s Conjecture on ECDSA Protocols

N. Vijayarangan, Nitin Agarwal, S. Kasilingam

Abstract: In this paper, an algorithm on Goldbach’s conjecture is newly defined for computing a large even number as a sum of two primes or a sum of prime and composite. Using the conjecture, an ECDSA (Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm) protocol is newly proposed for authentication. The protocol describes the process of key generation, signature generation and signature verification as well as security issues.

Note: This paper gives an algorithm on "how to compute Goldbach's conjecture". Using this conjecture, ECDSA protocol is implemented. It is different from ANSI standards.
