Sophie-Germaine (q = (p-1)/2);
usually generated in the process of testing safe or strong primes.
useful for RSA public key generation.
Tests (Vt decimal
Specifies the methods used in checking for primality.
Usually, more than one test is used.
often learned from peer during protocol operation,
and saved for later analysis.
failed one or more tests.
In this case, the highest bit specifies the test that failed.
checked for division by a range of smaller primes.
Tries (Vt decimal
Depends on the value of the highest valid Test bit,
where the method specified is:
number of primes sieved.
Commonly on the order of 32,000,000.
number of M-R iterations.
Commonly on the order of 32 to 64.
Size (Vt decimal
Specifies the number of significant bits.
Generator (Vt hex string
Specifies the best generator for a Diffie-Hellman exchange.
0 = unknown or variable,
2, 3, 5, etc.
Modulus (Vt hex string
The prime modulus.
The file is searched for moduli that meet the appropriate
Time , Size
When more than one meet the criteria,
the selection should be weighted toward newer moduli,
without completely disqualifying older moduli.
