A Simple Derivation for the Frobenius Pseudoprime Test

Daniel Loebenberger

Abstract: Probabilistic compositeness tests are of great practical importance in cryptography. Besides prominent tests (like the well-known Miller-Rabin test) there are tests that use Lucas-sequences for testing compositeness. One example is the so-called Frobenius test that has a very low error probability. Using a slight modification of the above mentioned Lucas sequences we present a simple derivation for the Frobenius pseudoprime test in the version proposed by Crandall and Pommerance.
